    Need opinions about a engine cover

    just got this




    i think it looks brill in silver but i was planning on painting it red as i just bought some red gaiters.

    but then i thought, keep the engine bay silver and chrome, do the center console silver and the red gaiters will look good with it, agree?

    Its just the paint the bodyshop used.

    I think it's the Ford focus black.

    The sparkles in it are very small so its not in your face.

    Not got any pictures at the moment that shows the sparkles.

    Station bodyshop sprayed it with a load of other bits. Your better off giving them a ring for a price.
    They can do it any colour you want, even the propper in your face metal flake paint or pearl paints. I have seen a black rocker cover with blue metal flake that looked cool.

    Get it airbrushed. Keep the raised bits silver, then do the outter section in a candy colour.

    Then have the VX logo brushed on as a light silvery haze where the current writing and logo are.
