Have you guys at ACS ever thought about custom engine covers? I have been tossing around the idea of one for my V6 that mimicks the ACS TL1 insert. Just wish I had the skills to modify my engine cover to look like that.

Agreed.

Thinking satin black, AGM, or a dark silver.

Original idea was satin black with a gloss black border on sides and front.

I left it on and place a wool blanket under it to keep the shavings out.
The back holes are difficult this way, so I may still take it off...

...painting today...

I left mine on too, I didn't have any difficulty with the back two holes, I used a cordless drill and a 1" hole saw and it worked perfectly. I didn't even take the windshield washer assembly off. I had more trouble trying to get the water deflector on, but I slotted the back two holes in the deflector then started the bolts a couple threads then slipped the backside of the deflector over them. It worked great that way.
