Default A few new touches

Valve covers are finally of the age that the color isn't quite right any more. Figured while I had 'em off, I might as well make 'em match my SC cover and EGR cap. I ended up re-painting (freshening up with the same color theme) and ceramic clearcoating the other parts at the same time.

I think the installed 'effect' will go nicely with the theme I have already. I think I'll do the Oil cap also, but not the center text portion.

Hmmmm.....laser engrave something on that front valve cover? Or around the oil specs on the cap?

Throw some ideas out there.

I'd have to sand through the silkscreened text that'* there already, so it wouldn't show through in black and light tan.

Hmmmmm.......

Keep in mind I can engrave text in a circle of a given diameter.
