Default Chrome Strut Tower Cover

I have been eyeing these strut tower covers by Kirban performance made for PT Cruisers.


I saw it on Scott Auto Concepts 34.95 + Shipping

Chrysler PT Cruiser Kirban Performance PT Cruiser Shock Tower Chrome Covers

I almost pulled the trigger to buy them until yesterday.

NOTE: The girlfriend loves browsing the local "Dollar Tree" store for a million things we don't need

She came home with four of metal jars and said, "you can use them for all the screws, nuts and bolts you have in the garage."
I told her I prefer the glass ones so I can see them from the outside before searching for the ever allusive bolt. I took them to the garage anyway.

I began putting them on one of the shelves with the other unused treasures when it occurred to me that the lid looked a just a tiny bit like the Kirban Chrome strut tower cover. Hmmmmmmmmm, I figured it wouldn't hurt to look.


A pretty good fit with a little silicone adhesive.




The strut bolt covers, I had previously installed. Got them on E-Bay

Nice job. The covers from the PT Cruiser stores add a little flare instead of just a cap and it keep them in business.

I find it ironic that the colors red, white, and blue stand for freedom until they are flashing behind you.

I love the look of those, would like to do this to my PT, is there anyway you can get hold of these lids again and sent them to the UK, I can pay for them, shipping and your time by Paypal, I have been unable to find these in the UK.

You can contact me on w.stoneham@ntlworld.com or on this site by sending a PM.

Any help would be appreciated
