    :lol:
    I also painted my valvecover.
    Before, all scuffed and old looking:

    After, the color is Cast Coat Iron:

    It looks soooo much cleaner than before. I love the color too. Better than Scott's baby blue at least, lol.

    Oh BTW, VTEC lobes are cool looking

    I don't know, they're Raymond's wheels for his IS300. Probably pretty light for 18's considering they are Ray's Engineering and they forge all their wheels.

    I used the high heat engine block paint from Shuck's, it was like six bucks for a can. I sanded all the scuffs and dirt and shit off with 80 grit sandpaper, using light strokes. Then, I used a sponge and some dish soap to clean it up and get all the grunge off. After that, I used an air compressor to blow off all the leftover oil and chipping paint and shit. I sprayed it with the initial coat, let it sit for 15, sprayed it again, waited about a half hour, sprayed it again, let is sit for another 30 minutes, and then put a final coat on it and let it dry for about three hours. Voila, new color.

    thats the same color i did my intake, and will be doing my valve cover too. my valve cover is just stripped right now. to strip the paint i used some uber paint stripper from home depot, shit is like gel that you paint on, let it sit for a few minitues then hose it off helping it along with a wire brush.

    i was gonna do a darker blue, but one of my buddys talked me into that one. its wayy better than it was acutally, with 1/3 of the black chipped off, that looked like shit.

    im probablly gonna re-do it a darker blue to try and match my intake, before i sell it.
