I think I'm going to re-do mine. Not 100% happy with how it came out. What is the best way to get the paint off with out using a harsh chemical that will ruin the cover?

Or should I just paint over everything with black paint to star over...?

Yes, it does. :( I would think that it's the paint.

It really makes a difference! I've been to a couple of shows and was really surprised at the number of people who took pictures of under my hood.

How close is the grabber green in person to the SGM?

In my opinion it is very close to the color in the engine compartment. I am very happy with it.

I should be getting mine back from the paint shop today, they are using the original IOM paint codes, so should be an exact match, doing the engine cover, fuse box and speaker grill in the trunk.
