Dressing up a carb?

Not sure where to post this, but it's kind of an appearance thing. My 88PS190 has the factory plastic square over the flame arrestor. You know the one, about 12" suare with a giant MC on it. I've been thinking of removing it and covering the flame arrestor (air cleaner) with a polished aluminum disc that matches the diameter of the arrestor. Only reason for doing so is because I think it would look better. Is this a common mod? have others done this? Anything to be concerned about?

Haven't seen it done but there really isn't anything to be concerned about if you are going to do it. Post pictures when you finish.

Mine is nice and shiney on top. Had to lose my plastic shroud for clearance reasons. You don't really need to cover it with anything unless you just want to.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

That is the low profile flame arrestor skidim used to carry and recommend for people who were putting high rise intake manifolds on their boats. You could probably get something similar to it somewhere else, but last I checked, they don't have them anymore.
