Default Strut tower covers :)

Hello all, Frank here reporting with a new little mod :p
i finally got some kind of covers to go over those rusty struts :p
They are actual strut covers from a 99ish cadillac deville, i trimmed them a little here and there but they work!!

What they looked like before i trimmed them... (another back up set lol)


and here they are on my monte they're better than nothing haha

I think you should paint them white - they would probably blend right in then. Maybe I'll give this a shot further down the road - mine look awful.

White Plasti Dip would do it since it adheres to rubber - and it wouldn't get nearly hot enough at the back of the bay to hurt it.
