What I did was remove the original embossed section from the vinyl that came with the original interior. Then I scanned it with a scanner at an embroidery shop so they could use a machine to embroider the new piece of vinyl for the engine cover. I used a wine thread that matched the carpet and the same stitching I used on the seats.

I did not want to use the pipeing again as it dated the boat and always bothered me, I went this route instead....

Here are just some random shots...I take no credit for the awesome job my guy did on the seats, I just helped with the layout and how I wanted it to look he delivered and blew my expectations away.
