I'm assuming you're talking about the Vararam. Unfortunately they don't as our throttle body is in a different location.

That "shiny hood blanket" idea was stolen from Dodgert. ( I only steal from the best!)

pop the plastic pins and remove. Those babies are in there tight- I had to yank like crazy and I broke a few in the process- they sell em cheap at any auto supply store.
The blanket is fairly stiff and retains it's shape but I tried to support it during painting with various objects so it didn't sag or crease.
Shoot it with a single coat of high quality primer.
Shoot it with 4-5 coats of paint ( I used a metallic black and this material drinks the paint so get a couple or three cans or your going back to the store)
Applied decal
Shoot the whole thing with 2-3 coats of clear coat

I also used one of those nylon scratch pads to scuff the paint between each coat and knock down some of the hairs and fibers that are part of the texture.

It was 100º one day last week and I decided that paint would dry fast - did the whole job in a day.

Oh yeah... I went online and searched "Mopar Decal" and up pops this site where you a guy sells em in any size and color- I chose 11" white
