Engine Bay Wiring Corner Cover

i saw this on someones car and thought it looked kind of cool but wasn't willing to spend 100+ dollars on it. so i got bored today and gave making one a shot.. i think it came out pretty good, for a 5 bucks, since i had most of the materials laying around. but if you had to buy everything you'd probably be in around 20-25 bucks...

i traced out a general/eyeballed measurement on card board for the template and cut it till i was satisfied with the fit..

i traced that onto a small piece of sheet metal (22 gauge) that i got from home depot for 5 bucks.. i made my bend prior to cutting so i would have more leverage. then i cut out my outline with a pair of tin snips and used a dremel to smooth out the rough edges

after that i just primed it and painted it . threw some rubber trim i had bought a while back at autozone for a motorcycle fender i made ..

overall this was pretty easy and i think it came out pretty good. im probably going to end up painting it black or maybe carbon fiber wrapping it at some point instead ... but yah. it was a fun and easy little project for a sunday.

Good job. Is it secured or will it bump around driving.

I made one about a year ago out of aluminum and painted it yellow to match the car. Looks good. The one OP built looks good as well. Nice job.
