gj on the search :D lol

for the op of thread, Personally id knock all that off with a sandblaster.it will be nice and smooth at the end. Then you HAVE to use Hi-temp resistant paint or it will be a waste of your money.

Re: Want to Paint Valve Cover

If you want it to last forever I'd get it powdered coated. But if you are going to DIY definitly have to use high temp paint. Unless you want the effect that someone stabbed your valve cover and it bled everywhere

Powder coating is expensive as hell though well worth the $$$ put up for it just saying it costs a pretty penny.

Re: Want to Paint Valve Cover

It would depend on where you go to get it powdered coated. Just thought I'd throw that out there. If you want a permanent job and have some extra money I'd get it powdered coated. If not then I'd go with the DIY high temp paint.

Please don't use regular paint. I dare you to drive around for 30 mins and then see how long you can hold onto your valve cover. It gets hella hot.

Powder coating isn't all that expensive. You can get all 4 rims done for ~150 dollars, and a valve cover would probably be no more than 60 bucks for an ABSOLUTE MAX. That's the beauty of powder coating, its uber cheap

Re: Want to Paint Valve Cover

Ok I'm going to be different here and say you don't need high temp paint, you can use regular cellulose paint to paint your rocker cover, I've painted 10-15 rocker covers in the last 2 years and all are still perfect. I've also painted brake callipers in regular paint and they're fine too. As long as you prep it well and prime it there shouldn't be a problem.

Re: Want to Paint Valve Cover

whats the price difference in regular and high temp paint? the only way i wouldnt go with the high temp paint is if it costs $20 more than the regular paint

Re: Want to Paint Valve Cover

Well what I was thinkin I'd do is prime w/high temp primer and then paint w/reg spray paint. VHT is like $10/can vs like $3 for normal spray paint. But this thread is a prime example of what I meant when I said I searched but came up w/mixed reviews haha. Everyone has somethin dif to say lol. Thanx for all the info tho. I was thinkin about sand blastin the VC. Anyone have a ballpark price on it?

i used montana graffiti spray paint and it holds up super well. no clear coat or anything, just baked it in the oven to settle paint. one can cost me $6 and i only used about 3-4 coats on mine. it has been 8 months now since i painted it and there are absolutely no imperfections whatsoever on the paint, even after heat. go ahead and blow your money on powdercoating or some expensive treatment, or just lay down $6 at an art store for some spanish motana paint for the same outcome...

Re: Want to Paint Valve Cover

you can use normal paint. VHT is for stuff like header/block .. but it doesnt hurt to use VHT for valve cover if u want

Re: Want to Paint Valve Cover

whatever paint you use...just bake it! as in stick the vc in the oven to settle the paint so it sticks nicely and doesn't scratch off with your fingernail.

Powder coating isn't all that expensive. You can get all 4 rims done for ~150 dollars, and a valve cover would probably be no more than 60 bucks for an ABSOLUTE MAX. That's the beauty of powder coating, its uber cheap
I know how the process and the material cost and takes so yes imo its a bit expensive but then you gotta think Its a service and thats what the main cost is in.
