I would think your local upholstery shop could cut and glue in a vinyl. Would most likely get dirty fast though.

Vinyl would not work....as most any material....the heat from the engine would destroy most materials...it should have a heat sensitive paint. The mural on my engine cover is now 8 yrs old. I know it has oxidized but cannot tell. After riding with my car...I always lift the hood up so the heat does not cause harm but realize it cannot be prevented.

I have painted mine a long time with regular paint and no problem.

I took mine out and took it in the house. I set it on the table and painted it with red model car paint. Plan on about 10 to 20 coats it soaks it up but it looks great. I’ll see if I can find a pic.

I have one of those very similar on my car and I used Gorilla Glue to attach it and I have had no issues.
