They are usually around $175 to $200 w/o shipping. If you're getting it (hopefully) from the same place I am keep it quiet

Dude, what's up with the 'keep it quiet'. I thought one of the main reasons why everyone uses this board is to benefit from sharing of knowledge. Technical, sales, etc etc.

I was just kidding. If you really want to know it's only the blue cover and they're on eBay. but if anyone out bids me I'm kicking some a$$.

What are the advantages of buying the blue cover over getting it powder coated? I don't understand why someone would pay $150+ for something that can be done for under $100.

Advantages:
1. because it's JDM
2. because it's JDM
3. did I mention it's JDM


seriously, you could always sell your JDM cover down road for some cash and put your stock cover on (assuming you kept it). That's what I plan on doing...parting out my car before I sell it oneday.

how hard would it be to paint it yourself anyhow? I didnt think it would be that much harder than painting your own calipers.

I remember malken painting his white himself.. anyone else know from experience?

I'm with you, I'd rather paint it myself then pay for a JDM one as much as I'd like one. You could paint it with some hi-temp paint, do a bunch of coats and then when it's really dry like a day or so later hit the raised parts with a dremel and get that nice brushed aluminum look back on the letters.

i paid $179 for mine from Lightning Motorsports. A lot of places I've seen have been selling them in the $220 range. For $155 make sure it is the real JDM cover.
