Default Engine cover hydro dipped

Today, I went to visit Wheelpro Scotland...

They're based in Easterhouse just off the M8 Jcntn 9 near Real Radio, and also have branches in the West of Glasgow and Edinburgh.

They're going to straighten or ( round out ) my wheels and do a FULL refurb on them, stripping them right back then applying the finish after being reworked, for a very good price!!

They also had this in for a customer as they also offer hydro dipping....wow!!!


Around 70 - 80 for anyone thats interested.

Anyone know if this would hold up in an engine bay?

I've had mine done for show days on a 2nd cover I got on the cheap. Hydro dipped plus an overlay
Won't be to everyone's taste but it brightens a rather dreary engine bay.
This was taken during the initial laying down an trim of the image before being clear coated
