This is my latest addition. Once again it's tricky to take a photo of the purple insert and cover - different angles show from purple to blue. But the top of the insert is chrome and also shows up rather strange in a picture because of the reflection. Oh well, you'll just have to see it in person I have a lot of shiny parts that will be added under the hood in the near future.

Sandy:

Your engine cover insert look great! Looks like it is piece of bright chromed sheet metal or plastic that wraps around the existing "SSR" letters, right?

What you need is a set of the engine bay fluid caps available from "Dragon2U". They are very nice!

Great to hear all the compliments, keep them comin'
The chrome "top" is a decal from SonnyB. He had some samples that were half lengths but I thought the whole top flat portion would look cooler chromed. So as you can see the curve sides of the insert still show purple.
So now I have three inserts - the original satin, this new U.V. with chrome top, and a stock U.V. For whenever a different mood strikes me!

Alex, I'm already onto Mike about the billet caps. I'm presently on hold until the manufacturing getting into full steam ahead

Fuzzy:

NICE work! I particularly like the good looking job that you did on the cut-outs on the air filter box cover.

SSR290:

Again, VERY nice painted engine cover! Painted engine covers make such a difference over the stock black plastic. Even if you do no more than get it painted to match the color of your truck, as I did, it's a BIG difference. Probably the most cost effective "appearance mod" that one can do under the hood.

MauiMike:

Yes, this is turning out to be a very good thread. This is what I've been advocating all along, fewer threads, but nice, consolidated ones packed with info and photos on specific topics like this one.

Color combo looks great! Is that a custom made insert? It looks like it has ribs in it and the large bowtie looks raised.

Yes Bagger it is custom made.

I hand rolled and formed (hammer and dolly block) a piece of Aluminum. Then bead rolled a few raised ribs and a chevy emblem.

Great work! Now that's an engine cover!

But, hey, come on now, you have to "can" the decal. It does not belong on your FINE work. Besides you did do away with the 2 decals on the shroud below the air filter box.
