      Finished and removed the tape. Nice to have the cover actually red, not orange like the metallic paint morphed into. So far so good. At just the right angle and light, you can see a bit of mis-shape where the crack was, but I am very happy with the repair. Going to put it on the car tomorrow after it has had a full day to cure.

      If I ever see an intact 2.4 engine cover at the junkyards I visit, I'll let you know. It looks great now but with all the temp changes under the hood, I'm afraid any glue is temporary.

      I also left a thick layer of it on the under side of the cover to help hold it. Time will tell. Thanks for keeping it in mind.

      Thanks. Now I have to do the fuse box cover to match. Thinking of possibly doing the panels on the front as well. Not going to bother with the header shield as I intend to eventually get the MPx Header/Cat.

      There we go. Has already lasted longer than the initial repair. I will update this thread after some time to give longer term results.

      Thanks. It also provides a great, new paint smell in the cabin with the heat on. Seems to be going away though.

      I'm right there with you on the caliper. I did one as a test last summer, than I ran out time with work and family commitments. So I have been driving around with just one red rotor.

      Ill just do the engine cover and see how that turns out. For calipers, i wanna get some kind of lift (or rent one) so i can have all 4 wheels off at same time. I've never explored it. I'll have to search...
