Re: Tickford cover (plastic)

It doesn't really mattter. If you like it keep it on, if you don't and you'd like to access your engine without taking the cover off all the time, then leave it off.

Re: Tickford cover (plastic)

I have taken my cover off due to me polishing the inlet manifold, T/B and MAF, plus all the bits underneath look the goods.

Re: Tickford cover (plastic)

Hey All,
Go to the thread "Au XR8 Cold Air Intake " and on the first page the pics are there as well, for some reason they don't want to blow up, maybe it is because they are already on the forums. There is 4 piccies there.

Re: Tickford cover (plastic)

What if the belt breaks? Doesn't the cover protect the bonet a little?
