I'm feeling like I need one already although it would be useless unless I put the car in service position.

Yep, keep in mind that I've removed the soft-top to make this a hard-top only car -- hence, the engine is now permanently displayed (through the glass door).

There was a company that offered a see through engine cover, "The Adrenalizer", But I don't believe it's still around. I would think it would be fun for a while, but would be a bit loud for long drives. Let us know how you like it.

They're popular with the Cayman owners.

That is nice but now you hav to keep the engine bay clean.

I guess it's easier to get to in a Cayman than a Box.
