Radiator ext. covers ~ the good and the bad
True, when you raise the hood these look great, cleaning up the engine compartment. However, the fit isn't that good. It can be modified, sure, but for the price that shouldn't be necessary in my opinion. I've ordered $5770 worth from AM and have always been super pleased over these past 4 years, but the covers could've been made to fit better. 1st, why have a hole that goes to nowhere. You have to drill a new hole (dead center of the raised circle) to attach the back bolt to the headlight support. 2nd, I'd pay an extra $10 to not have the cutout for the hood prop. For us that have hood shocks, that cutout takes away from the overall look. 3rd, the gap that joins the OEM radiator cover isn't consistant. Passenger side is good, drivers side much wider and doesn't run true. And 4th, the fit around the front of the headlights looks terrible when standing 6 feet back facing the car. I've read where guys have used spacers to eliminate that problem which I'll try, but again, for $70 they should fit better and not have to be fabricated. AM is still and always will be the best, and can't wait for my next order. Sorry this review is so lengthy.
