Resurrecting an older thread, but did you ever get your valve cover painted? I'm thinking about doing mine when I replace the gasket since it will all be apart anyway.

I'm considering lots of colors... maybe silver to keep the car similar, blue because its my favorite color, red because it looks sweet, gunmetal because its boss... so many possibilities.

You will need a Contour Valve cover, don't try to paint your plastic one, it will look like crap and the paint will fall off and make it look worse.
