Looks great Julian.

Was it a "Chore" to R/R them?

What kind of paint did you use? I don't think I have seen anyone paint them before. A lot of powdercoating though. Looks good!

Thanks for some of the positive feedback!
I put 2 coats of the high heat primer on - then about 3 coats of high heat yellow engine enamel, then 3 coats of high heat clear. "Pics show the stuff"
I let them sit overnight to dry up before installing. If I had the time I would of let them sit longer to cure even more before handling, They are ding prone at this point.
Overall I am extremely happy with the results.
20 bucks + my labor was worth it.

Murphy's law hit me, I rolled a valve cover gasket out of position and smelled the results all day today. I had to remove a cover and reseat the darn thing. It's tight in there when your trying to be careful of the paint job.
