So a couple weeks ago, I went to the junk yard and looked around for a spare turbo valve cover, after searching, I came across two; One in a 2.5 T1 LeBaron Convertible, and the other in a 2.2 TII LeBaron Coupe.

At first I was working on getting the TII's cover off, but it was stuck on there pretty good, I then walked back to the T1 car and began taking the cover off that one, It came off really easy.

After purchasing it and taking it home, It sat for about a week awaiting its final fate.

Yesterday I began work on it, it is now black and looks awesome.

I was going to go with the whole black and polished lettering and rails, but after seeing the finished product in all black, I am in love with it.

Here's the cover on the car at the junk yard:


Here's the cover at home after cleaning it real good with some cleaner:


Here's my current valve cover:


And here's a mockup on my car of the finished product.


Finished.
