Hi all

I'm doing up my engine bay and was wondering if anyone has done any mods to make the battery area look more presentable. If you checkout the photo below, you can see its an eye sore compared to all the upgraded and painted parts. :?:

damn it I hate that you cannot detect scarcasm on these forums sometimes..

Boot transfer is your best option. short of that, get a marine battery cover and paint it.
