Re: BA XR8 Painted Engine Cover

Looks good, and please dont take this as a negative, but any reason why you chose to contrast blue against the purple? I would have thought maybe a lighter purple or something would have been a more obvious choice...

Re: BA XR8 Painted Engine Cover

I just couldnt go past the trusty old "Competition Ford Blue". I have a spare cover now and I was trying to remember the name of the company in Sydney ( I think )that can do all sorts of things to these covers. Anyone know of their name or if they have a website ??

Re: BA XR8 Painted Engine Cover

I love it. I think it goes quite well with the purple actually, has anyone done this to an earlier engine cover such as EB-AU V8?
