I'm looking to see if we have any creative or unique painted valve covers underhood..

I just got a valve cover and could use some ideas myself..
Lets see what you've come up with.. :waytogo:

all valve covers were cleaned and prepped for paint then primed with krylon primer, then coated with high temp engine paint the wrinkle finish on top.

Do they make a high temp primer? Not sure what good high temp paint would do if the primer isn't high temp and under the paint.

did you paint the threads where the oil cap goes?
the first time you screw on the oil cap, you'll have paint chips in the engine..

as for high temp primer, they sell it in the engine paint section...
the valve cover doesn't get hot enough to worry about high temp stuff..
I'd just use enamal..
