    Sorry not my cup of tea. Might look better in a Matt or with the paint with the bits in to give the same finish as the original paint. It just looks a bit to fake.

      It looks ok, not great but ok. Maybe a sharper seperation of colors would have helped. The light blue to dark blue looks ok, but in the pictures the blue to red looks ehh. There is some bleeding causing a purple.

      Might look better when you shave the paint off the letters and trim.

        How about now? But I am doing it back to black

        ANYone knows where I can get the same color paint as the real M stripe colors? I bought over 10 cans of spray paint but I can't get the right color... I have to use the heat paint and they don't have that many colors. Please help I am going crazy trying to do this cover. I didn't drive my car for over 1 month.

          Colors look OK to me and I like the valve cover paint job. You should have masked off the spark plug holes too. I'd remove the paint on the oval shapes around plug holes and in them.

          I really like it.

            Regular automotive paint works for this, it is made to hold up to high heat. I had mine coated in a Honda red color with a clear coat and it has held up really well.

              I think it looks pretty good now. I prefer black over anything, but that's just me. For instance I don't like the EVOII look either, but since you obviously like the M-Sport stripes, then that looks great. Much better now that you've taken it off the letters and fins!
