Spend a few hours this last week redoing my valve cover I think it turned out pretty good. Let me know what you guys think!

After hand sanding from 80-2000 grit.

After 3000 grit and painted the inside grooves with 500 degree red paint.

Posted Image

I forgot to take a before picture but this VC didn't look as good as my original one on my car that you can see in the background here. I think it'll look sweet installed.. Just waiting new gaskets.

Posted Image

Think I might do my other one the opposite with the red/polished.. We'll see if I'm in the mood or not :)

Decided to get an aftermarket boost gauge to match my wideband and fuel pres. gauges.. this way I could use the triple gauge pod I got a while back.. I relocated my heating and air conditioning controls to underneath my stereo. I really like the way it turned out
