    With the right color I will look good IMO. in the next few weeks I'll be offering powder coating so if your looking for the ultimate coating for your valve covers let me know.

    I'm sure once I get my oven setup I'm going to be powder coating everything in my truck just because i can :D

    Those valve covers look awesome! That's a tough act to follow, but I did this yesterday... Not an original idea; saw it on here somewhere and liked it.

    Scuffed lightly, then 2 coats of Rust-oleum 'Professional' Safety Red 7564 over 1 coat of Rust-oleum 'Professional' grey primer (...love this paint). It's actually more red than the orange in picture.
