As a Crossfire that sold summer 2003 the car showed age and the engine bay had suffered marks and scratches from working under the hood. I used high heat engine paint under the hood and it looks great without the heat shield. The outer edges are done in Gloss BLK with clear coat. Now the hood does match the new car finish mate BLK.
This engine cover comes from the SLK and needed a small trim for the radiator hoze.
