    My latest Modification. x16xel owners may be interested with pics





    THis has been sat in my shed for ages waiting for me to finsh it, was never intending to tbh as I have a new engine to put in.
    But I didnt expect a feature and being my engine bay is missing most things as the have either been took of ready for the conversion ect.

    So I have finshed it now.

    Basically I have cut out the recess in the engine cover fixed a perspex panel to it and mounted a stainless plate to the engine. a blue light will back light it to give the engine a glow from the rocker cover.

    Ignore the paint job it aint perfect, but I wont be keeping this on for long onlt for its feature then it will go with the engine.

    I got this idea from a german zafira that was posted up around 2-3 years ago I think and looked good then. got started but the cover just sat in the shed for a long time.

    Only problem I have is the stainless plate is to small as it wa ment to be used for the smaller of the recess, but I could get the perspex to mount nicley so I had to cut out the whole recess. So I need to make a second plate a little bigger or find a old mirror to mount the stanless on to as it was laser cut for me a long time ago.

    Your thoughts boys and girls

    And the reason its grey I wanted to see how the color would tie in with the blue and polished.
    This the color my 2.0 is going to be painted. And I had loads left over lol
    Pics of it installed and working as soon as I have finshed painting the rest of the bay
