To quote my girlfriend:
"Pink is too pink, even for a gay guy."

Paint it pink, you're safe - people will just look at you weird.

Thanks for the reply. Well, the reaction I want to get from others is something like..."Wow nice EK,"....when I pop the hood..."WTF, a pink VC." I guess its whats under the VC that counts Click the image to open in full size.

Maybe I'll paint it burgundy or something along that line.

Columbia Coatings has a great hot pink color in their powder coating line.

http://www.columbiacoatings.com

Go to the online store, then look in the "special effects" section of the powder colors. They have the neon pink below. I used it under the hood of a white AE86 drift car and it really pops.

Best of luck on your project.

I wish I did; it was a quick favor I did for a friend, so I didn't take it that seriously. I was really suprised by how nice it turned out. White bay with hot pink valve cover and shock tower covers. Went back later and did several brackets, etc.

Columbia has sparkles that would make RuPaul giggly that you can add to any color.

There is only one pink thing I want on my car... and it's not a Valve cover. It's your car though, if you like rocking a pink valve cover more power to you. I definitely think you'd get a "WTF, a pink valve cover" once or twice.
