Hey everyone... I just purchased the Mines Carbon Fiber Engine Cover and am in love with it... Now, I know Mines makes a radiator shroud cover, but that is all they make for under the hood. I am interested in getting the compartment covers as well.

My question is, I know JDM makes the compartment covers and they look pretty decent, but would the weave match, or would it look odd?

Has anyone mixed and matched different carbon products with Mines Carbon Fiber?? If so, what products?? Would the Mines engine cover match with the JDM compartment covers??

Help....

Mines and Password JDM are like comparing Ferrari and Daewoo (ok maybe not that bad) but i have seen Mines in person and Password JDM . Mines is near flawless if not flawless. The Password JDM part i seen was their radiator cover piece and the weave looked terrible in my opinion.

I do not know about password jdm as I don't have any products from them. But I have a few of mines cf products and they beat all my other cf parts even top brand like Tommy Kaira and Top Secret.

Thanks all... I am actually looking for the Mines radiator shroud cover (Cooling Plate)... Any vendors here have it??

May just forget about the compartment covers if I can get the radiator shroud cover and stick to one brand under the hood...

Does anyone have a picture comparison of the Mines product next to JDM product, to make it easier to visualize. The problem is that I will be ordering the JDM parts from abroad, and if they dont match, returns and refunds is a huge hassle and dont want to get stuck with the costly parts.
