Dropped my engine cover off a few weeks ago to local place that does hydro dipping. Just got it back today & pleased with the results. I might now need to get more stuff done! Looks orange in the pic but is race red!

Looks great Greg! Must admit this is something I'm thinking of more & more.

How much did the dip cost if you don't mind me asking? Seen a company in the states that do these for around $200. That will leave you with the original though...

That looks really good. Really pops in the engine bay.

Liking that Greg, welcome to the engine covered crew! Might have to get a Mustang badge to stick on mine, looks quite cool :)

Not cheap - £200 plus vat. Looks better when you see I for real. They have smoothed it so no rough texture on the plastic, then carbon dipped & painted red in the exact area I asked. Apparently, it was a difficult job especially the letters!
I have added the small metal pony badge that I have had for ages ( from China through eBay)- not sure if that will be staying on. The US company that paints the covers are RPIDesigns.com starting at $199 plus $75 to smooth it out. You then have to pay delivery & import tax. Or paint it yourself like others have done.

Got from eBay for £2.42 free postage (from China). Came as a pack of two but only one points the right way.

@Greg C yeah the lettering was an absolute nightmare when I did it! Took a while! They've done a good job, maybe I should start charing £100 + postage to do it lol!

Gonna buy myself them then, nice find that is! Hopefully they stay stuck down lol!
