If knowing it's perfect under there is what turns your crank, more power to ya.That crap bugs me too. If you can`t do it right the 1st time why bother. Looks much better. Nice job!! Tell the wife maybe nobody will see it but YOU know it`s there and that`s all that matters. And I`m not bashing your wife...for the record!!! Ha.

i just completed mine as you. i also used clear engine paint on the rear cover; they are raw aluminum and may get some corrosion later. the clear will prevent it and makes it way easier to clean as i found out after installing it and had some grease on it that wiped right off instead of getting buried in the aluminum pores.
