    Engine Bay Dress Up

    where is a good place to get the dress ups for the engine bay at? i do not want cap covers, instead i want the actual caps. also, the stuff that hides the wires and such. not to sure about the battery cover unless i could get the number car i have and have it etched in there. any suggestions to all of this?

    I got my custom designed engine dress-up kit from third shift studios. Pretty happy with how it turned out.

    Also, will the battery cover work if the battery has top posts?

    Wire hide, cruise control hide, secondary air delete are great for cleaning up the engine bay. Head plate and battery cover are tasteful additions.

    Air delete is already done. Do you have a picture of and place to get the wire hide from?

    I think he means running the wires that are on the passenger side if the engine bay through the finder well. It's a sticky if that's what he's talking about. Not hard to do

    It probably wouldn't work too well as the cover plates are held in place with Velcro.

    Ah, no I didn't get those. I have seen them though. They look nice.

    I'll say that the engine bay dress-up kit I got was rather pricey. My kit was aluminum plate that was powdercoated. It was made with red and brushed aluminum acrylic, with black vinyl inlays on the SS's.

    I would call these places if you haven't already and ask. A lot of places don't show everything they carry on their website. If you do call and ask and they don't have them, they may know who does sell them.
