My Valve cover- The end all of paint jobs

Recently I have noticed a lot of people painting there valve covers. I painted mine years ago and it was painted Honda red and looked great under the hood. Fast forward a couple of years and I meet a guy at the YearOne cup that does awesome flames. After looking at his mustangs engine cover, I knew I had to have my valve cover done.

Well a few months ago my engine developed a bit of a knock (piston slap) and while the engine was being built I sent the valve cover off and just got it back yesterday. All I can say is WOW. Looks awesome on the car and really sets the engine bay off.


I will get some better pictures once I get the catch can installed and redo the NX kit. I have the solenoids mounted in a temporary spot since the rebuild and will be moving them again.


Look for a full engine build thread soon, until then enjoy these pictures.

Before:




After









Installed





Note- most of these shots were taken before i washed the valve cover so if it looks a little dirty its because of the residue from wet sanding and buffing.

Re: My Valve cover- The end all of paint jobs

his car is turbo-ed FoSho, or maybe i just misunderstood your statement...

that's pretty hot Josh (get it? ) seriously though, looks good. i like how he managed to keep the flame job from being covered by the coil packs and wire cover

Re: My Valve cover- The end all of paint jobs

Thanks for the comments guys!

i thought about blck with flames but i wanted the base red to match the color of the car and the rest of the engine bay. pluss black would show every little spot that got on it. he took a little longer than i hoped to do it so he offered a discount for the next job, just havent decided what i want painted yet.

Re: My Valve cover- The end all of paint jobs

Hey your valve cover is on fire!!!

That does stand out for sure. I'm not sure if I like it, but it's probably just cause it's so different.

Point for oringinality though. For sure!

Re: My Valve cover- The end all of paint jobs

Looks good man, good thinking on starting the flames at the very front so they are visible w/ coils and wire cover. Good job.

What material is your heat shield made out of?

Re: My Valve cover- The end all of paint jobs

okay one thing is bothering me, why do you have a green battery washer when everything else on your car is matched nicely around a red theme? lol. they sell red ones you know.

Re: My Valve cover- The end all of paint jobs

the battery isnt even under the hood anymore, its in the trunk. but yeah i try and match everything. some things are only temporary until more parts come.

That's awesome! I like that. It's a good thing he did the real fire, because if you chose the classic flames, it would look lame. Great piece!

Re: My Valve cover- The end all of paint jobs

yeah thats the reason i chose him, i got to see his work in person so i knew thats what i was getting. his personal car is amazing.
True flame is the way to go. i was thinking about having it on the hood too coming out of the vents. he said that would be a ton of work and costly so i may hold off on that for a little while.
