either they are exposed or they aren't ... if you are wanting to make them visible then exposed doesn't cost anything the carbon one looks quite awkward ( like big bug eyes ) and the clear one looks a bit rice car show for me ... if you are wanting to adjust your cam wheels with these you will still have to remove them for access ... keep it pure
lightweight expensive CF cover for adjustable "exposed" cam wheels just doesn't make sense to me :roll:
sorry to be negative but I just think that nice functional and beautifully engineered parts like those cam wheels don't need tarted up with any carbon or polycarbonate fluff :lol: ... carbon or polycarbonate have their place, don't get me wrong I just don't think that it is there
I have a MOPAR Viper NACA duct in my hood right in front of the exposed gears. Even though I have a 1/4" SS mesh grille in the opening, I figure when it's raining it's not a great idea to be blowing water all over the gears and belt.
FYI, here's the place that makes clear covers for Nissans:
... what you could do is geat a stock caover and shave the cam wheel end at 45 deg to expose the wheels like some people have done and take a cast/mould of the cut off bit in clear acrylic and fix with some sort of clips !!?
My interest in the idea of a removable gear cover plate is not cosmetic (primarily). I want to run adjustable gears and a shaved valve cover (for access to adjust the gears). The removable cover would be for safety/cleanliness/access.
