are tehre any type of engine over lays that just cover the electircal stuff for the heads?
im looking into getting a strut tower bar, and some one was saying they dont fit with the engine cover on. i dont mind the intake manifold but all those wires look too unkempt for my taste and id like to cover em up.

i know ive seen one set some where but i cant seem to dig em up with the search function.

thanks

Don't know, I think I saw someone with the 6.1, all it had on it was HEMI.

A few have installed the 6.1 covers, Some covered the 6.1 script with a plate saying something else... But Randysway is the best i've seen, he went all the way to shaving them down and painting it to match his mango...

U could jus shave them down and then paint all flat black again... With on the the HEMI parts silver as OEM, or maybe get Reflective concepts to make you a 5.7L Decal...

This is Randysway's last Thread, absolute R/T perfection...

He went all the way as to painting the intake manifold and installing 6.1 chrome rails...

Hope this helps...

nice cobra. what did you use to paint on the 5.7? a stencil? decals?
did it require any fabbing or did it just fit right on? is the word "hemi" still raised with the "5.7L" flat? did it come in that black color?

sorry for the barrage of questions but this has been something ive been wanting to do for a while hehe.

thanks in advance!

on that thread, whatd you use to get the intake manifold lookin so sharp? it really pulls it out and makes it look beautiful?

did you have to polish the covers to smooth out the areas that you sanded? or did they come out looking as clean as the picture shows with the 2 of them before the vinyls

did you have to coat them with anything after the vinyls to protect from the heat or do they hold up well? alltho i may not even add vinyls to mine.

again, thanks youve really set me on the right path :D

I use a water based tire dressing available only from Perfect Auto Finish in Roselle, IL.. One quick wipe and everything pops. It's also safe...

All I did was prime, wet sand and paint with a flat black.. I photocopied the actual cover to get the lay out for the HEMI decals. Once they had the photocopy of the actual cover, it was easy to cut the vinyl to perfection.

They'll hold up just fine with the heat.. :)
