Heko visors arrived today I'll hook them up before the weekend. I'll post up some photos next time of the engine bay too.

Hope you have a nice warm garage to assist the stickum. I did mine in the Spring and left the windows up for close to a week to make sure the 3m tape caught a good seal.

Small update:
I nearly finished the work on the engine bay I wraped the covers I made before with the same black leather, I used for the interior. Also added the dressup bolts, the oil cap, the reservoir cover and the radiator hoses.


Also installed the Heko window visors

Leather under the hood will dry out fairly quickly and may be a fire hazard due to the under hood temperatures IMHO but it looks good

I'm only worried about the durability of the leather, but I gave that a try. I'll check it often I did a long trip yesterday and it seems everything is still in the same condition. I hope it will be sustained

Nice job on the engine bay--I bought some dress-up bolts too, and found they make a nice touch. I wonder if you just treat the leather covers with a product that you spray on boots/shoes--I've sprayed mine (boots) with some stuff to keep the winter snow/salt residue from eating away at the leather--works great, but I can't think of the product's name. And those Heko visors--great to have to keep the water from coming in and dripping on your arm rests, plus, they look sleek!

Scotchguard for leather, Neverwet for fabric or Mink oil might protect it and keep it looking nice.

I love those Heko visors, they are on the wish list for The Speed Bump.
