That looks fantastic, and will look even better once painted. What did you use to fill it in?

Also, here's my early stage B20 cover project.



And here's a better picture somewhat of my first cover that I ever did.



Dupli-Color high temp white and clear, and used metal etching primer.

I've done a couple valve covers on here, like the chameleon paint on, and the midori green valve cover, this was a redo on the midori one. hope you guys like it.

Thanks I Just used bog haha. A few people think it wont work and will get too hot and crack but others think it will work fine. Nobody had actually done it before so I thought I would give it a go and find out if it will hold up.

is this sanded down to bare metal with clear on top of that? it's a cool idea, but what was the last sand paper you sanded with? you can see a lot of the sand marks...maybe going a higher grit would make it look smoother

yeah staging down with sand papers and finishing with a rubbing/polishing compound with power ball or something would bring about a flawless shine but personally I like the cuts. the "brushed" look is ill.

I purposely made those lines, in person it looks like wood grain. its kinda different and i like it. i have polished valve covers before and if u look at the previous one i had, i polished the hell out of that section, heres a pic of the old one.

u do it with sandpaper, from 600 to 800 to 1000 to 1200 to 1600 to 2000, and take really really long on each paper.

i just checked and i did use the metalcast primer, which is basically just silver paint. i used reg clearcoat. it still didnt come out the same color and the only way it think it would is if the part was chromed or had a chrome-like finish.

Here is one I got powdercoated a while back.. On my old 99' civic coupe, went with the car when sold...



And this is my newest, I traded a primered b16 one for it. the guy wanted an OEM look I guess...
