Default Service Covers

What are y'all doing for service covers for your 928?

Pelican Parts has a set for $109. Anyone have them?

Those are "universal" service covers. While they may work, they aren't nearly as elegant as the Colgan-manufactured service covers specific to the 928. Ping Roger on these. He was working with Colgan's "replacement" company IIRC to have some made a while ago. Or post a WTB for a set of pre-owned covers.

The Colgan set has fender covers with hard reinforcing panels sandwiched between the HD vinyl top surface and the fuzzy paint-side material. Padded hooks reach around the edges of each fender and fenderwall to hold the covers in place. Perfect for protecting the aluminum "wings", and for sure a lot better than any generic/universal set I've seen. There's a separate front apron section that includes padded hooks that hold on to the headlight crossbar so the cover can drape over the bumper shell. The three sections overlap nicely for a complete coverage solution as you work. These covers are definitely worth searching out if you spend any time hovering over the engine bay with tools in your hands.

Itoolio, you REALLY want the Colgan's service covers!

I bought a set of Colgan's from a non-928 source on the internet in April of 2016 in preparation for buying the Red Witch.

Here, I found them:

Bought them from Roger, years ago. He'll announce a sale price every so often. Get a set from him, they're fantastic, and they fit the car.
