In Reply to: Painting Valve Cover/Intake Plenum posted by Mark on December 22, 2000 at 14:09:29:

Looking into repainting my intake plenum and valve cover white with the Motorsport colors. Has anybody done this and what lessons have you learned. Does anybody know what paint to get and what the color codes are?

My buddy repainted my plenum and valve cover silver, and were going to add the stripes soon. what we have found it that the paint didn't have enought time to cure, so when we started the car, it baked the top paint layer, so now the paint it bubbling. when he re shoots the valve cover w/ the stripes, were going to also strip and reshoot the entire valve cover then let the thing set for a couple of days before we put it back on the car.
here are a couple of pics of the engine w/out the stripes
