    Desticker the entire engine bay like I did. I removed the labels off the fuse covers as well. The exact same diagram is in the owners manual. After I removed those decals, I painted the lids gloss black as well. I hate freaking stickers/decals.

    LS1speed(non sponsor). It was pricey, $75 to be colormatched in pewter. I think you could find one just as nice for less $$$$ to be honest.
