The alternator cover is pretty simple, it has three or four little grip spots. It has a huge magnet inside that will give you a little grief but it's not bad (DO NOT PRY IT). Just make sure to keep track of all of your cover bolts by length/location and be sure to remember where your copper washer is.

I would only ever powder coat my covers if I personally did the masking. You don't want any down the bolt holes or over the space for your copper washer and damn sure not any on the inside of the cover. Powder-coaters do that shit all day every day which makes them lazy and complacent. You should also powder coat your wheels.

Nice. Thanks for the photo too. I am having mine resprayed a satin or matte black and this helps a lot. I moved here to oz and could not ship my 2010 SE. All the 2012 R's sold out. So I opted to do custom paint. I like yours. Perhaps paint wheels black and add red stripe. I was thinking of that. however my wheels are already black.

I was thinking that saaaaame thing!... i need to get my wheels powder coated black first though. That would really set it off.. and find a decal maker..

Thats why I havent got red ones. I almost did once, but the red wasnt a good match.. there is a lot of reds out there.. But, if I go white, I can just get them from tapeworks.......
