Still want them Bill and Chuck??
Man, I'm dissapointed at them. Why can't someone produce a nice looking cover for the strut towers?

Steeda was on the right track, but it makes no sense to cover the center strut nut, but leave the other 4 mounting nuts exposed.

Leo- I have no other option but to see what MWAG sends you as the final product. Let me check it out before you return yours.

No problem I'll wait. I was acutally thinking we might be forced into keeping them since no one else has anything better out. I might just keep them and use the originals just for show.

I thought I'd let everyone know I ordered color samples from graphics-express today. I asked for slate metallic, silver metallic, charcoal metallic, and matte black. Once I decide on the color I think I'm going to just bite the bullit and order a shaker stripe like Tom's. I'm really hoping I like it since there's no returns unless I decide on matte black or slate metallic. Worst case scenario I'm out $100 if I go with a "custom" color and decide I don't like it.

So let me get this straight...

If we keep the new designed covers, we also get to keep the original covers?

BUT, if we decide to get a refund, they will require us to send back both the original and newly sent covers?

Ever consider dual 12" wide racing stripes?

Here's some pics of Matte black, Dark Grey, Dark Charcoal Metallic.

That's my understanding anyways.

I'm not a fan of stripes on a black car. They don't look bad but to me it doesn't have the same Ooooo and Ah factor that your car, a VB with white stripes, or a PW with VB stripes has. Plus I don't think I'd have the patience to apply them.

Aside from that, you can see what the different color vinyls look on your Black hood.

Disregard what I said earlier about the MWAG shock tower covers. I just called them and what they told me was If you want to keep your old ones then you don't get new ones. If you want the new ones then they'll send them to you and included will be a prepaid shipping label to send back the old ones.

This really ****es me off. I want to keep my old one's and use them only for show but I can't because they have that rub mark. I asked if I could have my old mold replaced and was told all the old ones have been destroyed. So now I'm either stuck with my defective tower covers, the new crappy covers, or even worse no covers at all.

I think I like the dark metallic charcoal which means it will cost me $99 since it's a custom color.

Thanks for calling them up and getting it straight.

I'm thinking to go with the new covers no matter what. Even though my 'old' ones are perfect (no rub marks), it'll always be on my mind that they will eventually rub through.

I understand that they can be used for 'Show Only', but I really don't want to hassle with the on/off at the shows, Mustang Cafe, or anywhere else I want to pop open my hood to show it off.

So, I'm assuming that MWAG hasn't acted on our account yet until you officially tell them that you want or don't want the new covers? Or did you already tell them to ship the new ones?

I think the D/M Charcoal looks the best too. The Matte looks good, but I'm not sure about the long run since it can't be waxed like the Gloss or Metallic. ** Am I right on this? **

Leo, stop smoking that junk!

Remember when you said for me to tell you when you start doing 'tupid stuff? Leave them alone or like Tom said, take them both off.

my .02, take 'em off. If they bother you it'll be worse every time you look at it.

Noooo!!!

Don't do that design, Leo.

Rest easy as I can't since they only offer it as a paint stencil.


Don't you dare! Get over it, it looks great!

Keep in mind, any derogatory comment you make on the awkard appearance of the '281's' affects me too.

OK, OK your right and thanks for the I needed it.

No problem. I see your point it's just I think the new design is so half-a$$ed. Maybe they'll grow on me. Eitherway I guess it looks better than not having the area covered at all.

Your right about not being able to wax the matte black they have a disclaimer on they're site that states that. Not only that but matte black would be a little to suttle IMO.

Ah like I told Bill I'll just leave them on. I guess I just got butt hurt when I heard the idiot at the track say wtf is a 182.

Was that before or after you smoked his ***?
Jealousy makes immature jackasses spew derogatory and asinine comments.
Of course I would have said something like, "It says 281, WTF are you illiterate or just stupid.

It was acutally the announcer. He didn't say it on the mic though. He was standing outside the booth while I was lined up at the burn out box so I didn't really have time to say anything.

Ehh, don't even bother wasting your breath. I know if anyone talks smack about my car, they are either Camaro lovers or the itsy-witsy minority.

I see your point. It'd bother me too then.


If I can add to the opinions today...

Gold or possibly Silver stripes look good on a black car... that's about it. Unless you have a matte black, blacked out hood.

I don't like any of the strut covers, except for the steeda ones, maybe.
