That's actually the coil cover, if you want to be really specific, not the valve cover. Looks really good.

First time I've heard it called a coil cover, but if someone wants to get one wrapped + they have $$$, they can call it whatever they want (heard about 3 variations about whats it called)..... LOL

Well if you think of it logically, the injector cover is directly on top of the injectors, the valve cover is directly on top of the valvetrain ( below the coil cover) while the coil cover covers the coil. Logic works everytime.

Back on topic, your products look excellent! Keep it up.

Looks good! Any pics with the tailgate closed? Can you still see them through the little window, or only when it's open?

You see them both ways. Never thought to take some with the tailgate closed... Good idea. Going to be finishing parts and then probably next weekend go over again and take proper pictures installed in one of the showroom cars..... I'll make sure to take some pictures of them with the tailgate closed too.... THanks!

Turned out great. You officially no longer need to ask "what do you think", It always comes out great!!

We'll talk soon BTW. Had some things come up recently.

Sounds good. Let me know. Have my first HPF M3 complete intake and a bunch of interior parts to do. Parts left California last week, should be here in next couple of days. Wrapping the intake manifold amongst other things...
