After the 3rd attempt at painting the engine cover and I still didn't line the results. I was checking out the site and ran across the thread from Tiny Adams and his engine cover: thought I would be better off to have it done by someone and quit wasting my time. PM'd Spencer at Elite Hydro. I don't know how many emails, text messages and phone calls between 8am and 2am this was the end result. Damn nice work - thanks Spencer, drinks are on me.

Originally this started out as an attempt to get them done before the Texas Wide Meet. I shipped the covers 1st or 2nd of August and between USPS taking 5 days to Elite, the 6 coats of adhesion promoter, 9 coats of yellow, 6 coats of black and multiple coats of clear I had tried to apply, needless to say it "took a little longer" than we expected.

In the first pic you can see the engine and fuse box covers I tried to do. The remaining pics are of Spencer's work. Still trying to get some better pics but lighting wasn't cooperating.
