Engine bay bling

Just added some bling in the form of a polished cover over the nose to radiator support.

yeah that is radiator fluid leaking out of the gasket (on my list) and yes the car is pretty dusty right now. Have the windshield off and fixing some rust on the hood windshield rim.

Re: Engine bay bling

I like that cover! I have a chrome radiator support and chrome fender supports. I kept my original parts however. These were a gift so I HAD to install them!

Hey Bob, see my post in the non-camaro section. Just picked up the 2013 Challenger R/T. She is my everyday ride! I think it has lines very similar to the gen 1 Camaros but she sure is bigger.

Just busting your chops. I was the one who posted about my Magnum in your other thread. They're definitely huge cars, but the old Challengers were pretty large as well.

I have been looking for one of those. Where did you get that. Looks really nice.

Rick's Camaros. They have a couple styles available.

I had to modify this one to get it to fit.

Firstly my hood stops are spot welded so they do no move so I had to notch open to slide in rather than over the hood stop bolts. No biggie as the rubber edging pretty much hides that mod.

Secondly I had to roll down the front part of the opening for the hood latch spring assembly. Mine kept hitting the front edge of the opening but that was easily resolved. What I really like about this, besides covering up that hole, is that it comes out very easily without unscrewing anything. Now that is because of my first mod. When the hood is down it holds it tight in place so I don't think there are any worries about it going anywhere.
