All these covers look awsome .. good job to everyone.. i found a rb30 rocker cover in the shed a few weeks ago.. (dunno how it got there, just was), so i polished it and wacked it in ... looks awsome .. polished a bit of the plenum and re sprayed the heat shield .. gives the car a nice face lift under the bonnet..

but noone has answered how to do that 2tone effect?? ive got the OG cover still and wanna mess with it with some colors.. maybe try the 2tone...

sanding pad on angle grinder or stripper disc on air sander and top coated in candy colour of your choice, the weaker the candy, more coats, the deeper it will look.

marble effect ay, thing is with candy pics on digi cameras, where the silver or very lightest blue is, it goes green, so where its green should be a very light blue.

So do you have to use the high temp paint, or will normal paint work? I wanna match the rocker to the car colour when i'm painting it...

nah 2 pac is fine, as for the 2 tone you paint the base colour first then let it dry and change colours like you are just doing another coat just don't paint the whole thing then clear over the top, easy as

get a grinder and grind it off, if your going to paint it a colour, not transperent ud have to either lead wipe the grooves around the logo or use a welder and fill in the grooves and grind flat,then, smoothen out,prime and colour.
