Yes yes! Nice! That part which has the "speed six" writing, can you get painted a different colour too? All the ones posted on here seem to be the same colour.

Thicker carbon sheet can be used to highlight the TVR logo if you like, fixed with hi-temp silicone.

I like the classic monochrome look, with a dash of carbon biggrin

How do you guys clean your engine bays? Is it as simple as using a damp cloth and a bit of elbow grease?

Hey guys,

Anyone know where i can get one of those carbon fibre plug covers from? I have the standard black plastic one but it looks like it's been damaged and repaired in an earlier life.

Are there any benefits to the carbon one over the plastic one apart from some bling?

I'd imagine the plastic one to be lighter than the carbon one too?
