  • So back to painting valve covers to Evo 2...

    For those that have done this, where the heck did you get the paint? Strolling down the aisle of the hardware store doesn't seem to be the way to go. Anyone know someplace online where I can order spray cans by pantone, rgb, bmw #, etc?

    Do I need high temp paint or will regular enamel be sufficient?

      Has anybody ever had a valve cover/plenum professionally painted/powder coated in Motorsport colors?

      If so, Who; How much did they charge; how good a job did they do; and how long did the process take?

      I notice that a couple of the links Magnus posted seem to be professional powder coaters, but it seemed from my quick review that they only deal in bulk orders?

          We will when we get more useful results. I think we should "add to it" in complete coherent thoughts.






          ChrisF. I would think a good 300-400 degree paint should suffice. I mean, if you're hitting that range and higher, you're probably fucked anyway.

            Korman does it, but it's expensive. One plus is as soon as they get your core they send it out, because they already have them made. At least thats how it was when I checked it out.

              Best place i found was for $60 or $100 to have the letters painted other colors
