Valve cover paint?

I'm looking to paint my valve cover. Nothing fancy, but it is in need of some attention and could use some fresh paint. Will any high heat type paint work well or is there a particulat type that is better than the rest? Thanks....

Most any spray paint will work.
I've used Rustoluem and Krylon
with good results.

Re: Valve cover paint?

Won't the heat generated by the motor make those paints fail as they are not high heat paints?

You need to use engine paint, found at any wal-mart. Normal spray paint will not hold up.

Re: Valve cover paint?

I've used the BBQ black paint.
Holds up perfectly.
Cheap and easy.. took about 15 minutes.

Yes, that bugger gets real hot, and I have bubbled "spray bomb" in a week. Use at least the 500 degree engine paint. I used VHT in Red, I am partial to red heads, so I now have my own 1.3L Suzuki "Testa Rosa" (Red Head in itallian).

Ya, I have been thinking about getting the chrome cover from you Dave. That is cheap horsepower. If I had the snorkel from air box to carb chromed, that ought to be good for at least 5 more horses.

Don't forget the billet oil fill cap. Combined with a rear spoiler, this is good for some serious power.

I learned that from the Honda guys.
