I just wanted to share some picture of my valve that I painted today.

The motor is still sitting in the garage until I take it to Miami to get swapped in professionally.

All I did use the allen wrenches to take off the valve cover and the side cover that covers the cam gears as well as the intake manifold cover.

I used duplicolor enamel spray paint

I cleaned the covers then painted them white so that the colors I used would stick out better














The middle piece and intake cover was painted white and then sprayed with the purple and a blue

Let me know what you think :)

it looks ok tho.. not my choice of colours pretaining to the light blue /purple trottle body and middle section but i like the originality of colour choice. painting other componets in the engine bay in the same colours or similar should bring out a colourfull engine bay. hope to see more pics when its installed and eveything is finished.

I used the metalic anodized purple. I highly recommend you use the white first so the purple sticks out more. I think if you just use purple it'll come out darker.
