  • Smooth Finished Two-Color Engine Cover Installed

    Since Corvette announced engine covers in various color options, I've wanted an engine cover that would tie my exterior and interior color scheme together within the engine bay. The issue I've had with options so far is that they have been single color options and, more importantly, they are all textured like the OEM covers rather than sanded and smooth finished.

    I finally came across what I was looking for from RPI Designs and ordered one in Sebring Orange with Rapid Blue highlights to coordinate with my exterior/interior color scheme. And yes, I know not everyone likes my bold color approach, and that's okay! 🤣 Anyway, the finish work is excellent and I'm super pleased!

    Now I guess I need to paint my valve covers. 🤣

      I like the idea Jeremy, looks good. RPI has some pretty nice stuff. I'm hoping they will do simple side skirts for the C8 like the ones they sell for the C7.

                Jeremy you could have described that to me all day and I would have been a serious skeptic, but dang if that doesn’t work on your car! AMAZING LOOK! Now for the valve covers.

                        That sounds like a LOT more work!

                          More info? Don’t see anything on their website for custom covers....

                            WOW! Just WOW!!!! Love the look very unique. Great photo work as always.
                            I think the shot below really ties it altogether.
