Painting my valve cover

Just another option to polishing or painting.

I had my late model cover ceramic coated by QC Coatings. I had previously polished it, with many hours of dremel labor involved. Getting it ceramic coated and never having to polish it again was well worth the minimal cost. I also had the engine crank covers done, and have since repainted the recessed areas black.

First pic with flash, second without. Let me boast a little about the freshly powdercoated engine hanger and oil cooler/horn bracket, as well as the polished cam caps.

Cost me shipping there (about $20.00) and a check for $85.00. Got all 3 parts done. I am a happy guy.
