    Default Has anyone modified their engine cover?

    When I was part of the astraownersclub we had several members who modified their engine covers. Has anyone done this on their vectra? I dont want to do anything major just looking for inspiration. Ideally I want to remove the yellow ecotec

    What type of paint did you use? How did you remove the yellow ecotec writing etc?

    Ideally I want it silver where yours is blue and some decal instead of ecotec
