    Picked me up a extra set off ebay for super cheap, so I painted them a Graphite Metallic color. When the sun or any light hits them they really pop. Only installed the pass side today cause I have to get the energy to pull the s/c off for the drivers side. I'll try and get a better pic tomorrow in the sun.
    Here's what they looked like before I sandblasted and cleaned them.

    Thanks guys! They make the engine bay look so much nicer!
    My friends are doing a trade of covers, so they all can have painted ones. Once the last person is done and I have a complete set back I'm gonna sell them since I'll have no use for them anymore.

    Paint.

    I would be interested in buying your valve covers, when your buddies are finshed painting.
