Default Engine Cover Paint

Okay so I finally painted my engine cover. I was inspired after reading others who have done so.

I couldnt decide on a color scheme as my truck is Austin Tan and that wouldnt look too sporty. I just decided to keep the color scheme of everything else under the hood. Yellow and Black just stood out to me after seeing the others on here with red and silver or blue and silver. The yellow dip sticks and fluid tops just stick out too much.

So what do you think?

Great job on the cover, I like the idea of the yellow and black.

I plan on painting the air box next and installing a chrome intake tube to replace the sad looking corrugated rubber.

So, does the cover just pop off or is it held in place with fasteners?

Yeah it just pops off but you need to remove the intake tube then lift up and pull towards you

Looks good. This makes me less on the edge since I have an Austin Tan Truck as well.
