i printed out a picture of an eagle, then put a bunch of masking tape on the heat sheild. And cut out the eagle...scuffed the eagle, and then painted it with brake caliper paint.

It don't know if that will be able to withstand the engine heat.

Wow, looking real good. In that last picture, your car looks I can walk under it! Well, just in comparison to the rolling seat. :)
