Has anyone done anything neat to there valve cover? I mean in painting it. I've seen some red, yellow, and polished ones. I want the Ford cover but I have a 1.6
Post up pics and info, Maybe doing a multi-color design would be cool.

it has 6 different colors sprayed on
white primer base
pink flowers
green leaves

Re: Valve Cover Ideas

I did my 1.8 cover in texture black and polished the letters to a smooth mirror-like finish. Sorry, my photography sucks, but it looks pretty amazing in person.


My 1.6 cover is just regular black with the recesses painted red

But it used to be black with flames. Looking for a pic...

Friction fighter I always thought that valve cover you painted was rad. did you use stencils of hand paint it or what? When you do your next one you should do a progress thread.
