Engine bay bling, who is making alternator covers and caps in colors?

I could have sworn a few weeks ago I posted in a thread here where someone had made some RED aluminum Alt and AC covers and no where to be found? Maybe it got deleted not sure??
Looked in "my posts" to and couldn't find thread.


Anyhow looking to see if anyone knows who currently is making some metal alt and AC covers as well if anyone yet has made some diff covers other the yellow for our washer tank cap, coolant tank cap, dipstick etc...?

YES absolutely I've searched.

Thx if you can assist!!:happy0180:

Krylon for plastics has held up really well so far. I also hated the yellow.

Not sure, but they add a lot of boost. Ego boost.

That'd be my guess. I recall their name was AREV.

EDIT: found their new thread http://www.ft86club.com/forums/showthread.php?t=38390. Looks like the original thread was deleted, they created a vendor account, and re-posted again within the last hour.

Just because you dumped around $12,000 into your car within a year of owning it doesn't given you automatic license to be a smart ass to people that don't have that kind of funding or desire to spend those types of funds.

I read your build thread and its very impressive but seriously. Its not like he wants to do tribal designs on his dash or write FR-S on his fuse box cover in Sharpie. Haven't you ever seen chrome parts on Harleys or Hot Rods?? How is this different?

Sarcasm is difficult to detect in written form as is inflection. In that case, I tend to err on the side of caution.

Either way, since I don't know the OP or you I'm not the slightest bit angry, let alone have an aneurism. You rushed immediately to defensive-mode though. I assure you its unwarranted. :happy0180:

That one got locked again - looks like there's a new one in classifieds.

$149 intro price, too rich for blinging out the engine bay for me, although I'm sure some will be interested.
