RE: Urq Valve Cover Painting

I had mine media blasted and simply painted it with black high temp paint.
The paint has a satin finish not too different than OEM and does seem to
hold up fairly well (at least here in mild California).  I don't know where
anyone got anything other than a stamped steel valve cover on their WX
engined QTCs ...
