Engine Cover Problems

It's weird the letters/numbers are fading off.

What should I do?

Discard them or send them off for repaint or ?

To those of you who sent your Covers off to Corvette Mods in Texas to have painted the color of carbon fiber -- was it worth it ?

They are Hydro Dipped / carbon fiber look. I had mine done and worth the money.
It takes about 8 eight weeks for completion.

Paul at Corvettemods.com no longer offers this service.

Took about two days to get an answer.

Paul did not offer a reason why they stopped this service.

No kidding? I just received mine from them roughly two months ago. Hopefully someone else will provide the service. I definitely like mine.
That said another option would be some custom valve covers instead.

This is what I did on my Z06. Katech valve covers with Katech coil relocation kit and longer MSD plug wires.
