Neither, really. I may beadblast with fine glass to get the crap off, but that'* not the final finish intent.

Maybe the first in a bonneville but definitely not on a FWD 3800.

With those F-body Valve covers where are you supposed to refil your oil from when you do an oil change?

As long as you use the long life AMS or Mobil 1, you should be fine for 25,000 miles, the ammount Zilla gets drove, say for argument sake, 2000 miles per year he should be good for atleast 12 years, so say 2019.
I'm kidding guys. With the proper tools you can do anything, even change oil

Ya it only takes about 2 minutes to remove the front cover.
Actually I think the picture was of his original rear cover and the new painted F-body unit.
Bill doesn't change his oil as often as he changes his engines.
