    Fuel Rail Cover Help!

    Could someone help me out with the modifications I need to make for a proper fitment on my 98 TA. Thanks in advance!

    They are 97-98 Corvette FRC's

    What should I use to cut, where to cut and do I need to do anything special to do this?

    Get a hold of a Dremmel and mark out where your fuel line runs and cut out the appropriate notch.

    Search, search, search, ...
    Simply look at all the photos all over the web & the forums.
    Figure it out. Dremel, Jigsaw, coping saw, ..., Whatever it takes, ...
    How about one of those miracle cutting tools that came out a couple years ago that lets you cut thru drywall, ceramic tile, ...,What the hell are they called again?!? Sorry, off on a tangent, ...



    (FYI SOMSS, I don't think the fuel line notch is the problem. At least he has the right start with the dual notch covers from the 97-98 Corvette.)

    To make my fuel rail covers fit right I had to make some adjustments to the stock Corvette covers.

    Here's an image of a set of fuel rail covers from Afterthoughtsauto with the adjustments already made. The modifications I made were very similar. An additional cut that you can't see very well is for the throttle body cable on the passenger-side cover.

    Yeah, the cut I made was a little bit smaller.
