Diff cover art?

I know it is going to get bashed around but I am thinking about having a friend of mine airbrush this face onto my Riddler diff covers before I install them. Just think it will be kinda fun.

Front

Rear


Anyone else have anything fun on theirs besides the usual scrapes and dents? What do you guys think?

Can you think of anything more appropriate and humerous? I think it will give people a few laughs esp the more I beat it up. I need to paint them anyways so Im thinking just paint the diff covers dark red and airbrush the face on them.

He's the main character from an incredibly hard video game.

Its the main character in a game for the Xbox and he just gets killed by numerous entertaining methods. Its kinda funny to watch.

Edit: AZTJ beat me to it

I just painted mine color matched and the logo in black.

I've see several cool pictures somewhere but can't remember where. I have a standing "joke" with the cover on the D35 under my jeep now...it is painted color matched and every time I bust it I take a sharpy and put a "slash?"...to count the brakes. 4 lines so far.

In time young grasshopper. I'm not made of money.

I have to save up more than you. ;P My monthly check is probally half what you make ...wife doesn't work and I pay for her school...and two kids. You do the math. ....I'm broke.

I do have all the parts laying in the garage though. And I'm not really broke.

Darn

awhh well, I think I am going to buy one of the PS for my rear anyways, but I cant decide if I want one for up front or not. I dont think Ill be swapping up front anytime soon but if I find something... ah well. body colored matching is a good call!

Personally preferance but I'd protect the front diff first.....how many rocks do you drive backwards into? both will see damage if you wheel but the front is more open up to damage and the first to encounter it.

True, I do have the tendency to get into the weirdest situations on the trail though.... The D44 is more valuable though

I have only had the front hit stuff like three times, so yea I should probably get a cover there first. Your right.

I just might let you do my thinking more often distorted.

With Riddler covers, you'll decorate them with the marks of the track bar smashing into the front, and rub marks from hitting the gas tank in the rear.

I'd suggest getting different covers with better clearance properties if you want to paint stuff on them.
