Icon5 my 95 lude...what color valve cover??

Hey guys. I bought a 95 prelude se on thanksgiving and have been doing just little things to keep it nice and clean looking. Header, amber corner lights, alpine amp, speakers, and headunit. Now i was looking to paint my valve cover. I was looing for something a little different but still match the car. What color do you guys think would look good? Heres some pictures of my car. Thanks

The car looks great!!, i would go with black, or you could polish it and keep it raw looking, i think ima do mine in Chevy Orange, just to keep with the usdm theme.

Re: Valve cover opinions

I mean, it's really up to you...As long as you like it, it works. But, it makes it even more awesome-ish if you figure out what your ultimate color scheme is gonna be. See, with mine, a SSM 5th, I made my scheme, at first silver and blue, but then after getting the two tone CF hood, I decided to go with black and red. Check out my Ride page (in my sig). Red, silver, and black really go well together.




By the way, I'm really jealous of your interior. Darn you to heck for having leather.
