Painted The Plastic Engine Cover Thingy, But Have A Question.(W/ Pic)

Well I painted the top cover thingy cause I took it off a while ago due to missing a mounting bolt/nut.

Anyone come up with better mounting hardware, the dealer doesn't have a stock # therefore can't order.

I went and got a couple bolts and acorn nuts, but when mounted it is wobbly, anyone have this problem and what did you do to mount it more solid?

Thanks!

Here's the thingy, I don't know the technical name for it.

Ummm it says right in his post that he got some, but its still wobbly.

To op, maybe make a bracket or put some washers underthe cover on the bolts to hold it up a little higher. Just a thought.

Tryed the washers, and would love to make a bracket. Any idea's for something clean looking even though it won't be seen. lol

I honestly wouldnt have a clue. I took mine off all together, and after seeing how good yours looks i might try and wiggle it back in there, after i paint it.

Thanks! Yeah I've noticed a lot of people take theirs off, but to me it just looks incomplete without it.
If I come up with something nifty I'll post it up.

I bet you could bend a piece of 1/4" steel strapping to put under it and make it stable. Just a thought....
That would allow you to keep it from wobbling and give you a little less thread which would allow you to tighten more....just be careful.
