CFD Billet Strut Covers

Hi All, I have been working on some new parts for my Camaro and will be offering them soon. First off are Billet aluminum strut covers. Machined from 6061 aluminum and polished to a mirror like finish. These covers install in seconds and WILL NOT bang and chip the strut towers as man others do. Most covers in an attempt to fill the gap below the upper bushing do not allow clearence when the suspension is unloaded causing them to clunk and chip the paint. These covers are a clean simple alternative to those alread being offered. I expect to have a few sets read for shipment by weeks end for anone interested, thanks, George

The prices for the covers are

$69.95 (standard)

$89.95 (with LED'S)

Those are nice George, I have been looking for covers like that. How do they attach, like the black caps that come from the factory?

Hi, they do not come engraved. Black powdercoating would be possible.

Hi Paul, yes they attach the same way. Rather than the use of adhesives or set screws the inside is threaded, just remove the factory caps and screw them on.

With several sets installed and a set on a convertable no banging issues or interference with the factory strut tower brace. The OD on some other manufacturers are a bit large and will contact the factory brace on the Vert, no issues with these. As soon as I slow down a bit will be working on matching filler caps, I'll keep everyone posted on progress.

While they are nice, in my opinion, they are too plain. Can you cut a divit inbeteeen the outer edge and the center? Maybe like that and add five large flutes. Just some ideas. Not knocking you by any means, just think they need a little more character. Flat black powder coat would probably look good too.

Although I could make them more "fancy" my thoughts are they should clean up the strut towers but not draw attention away from the engine or other componenets. I prefer clean and simple. Powdercoating in flat black or other colors are an option but perhaps I'll give it some thought again, but not much LOL.
