As long as you get high temp paint and clear coat, rattle can holds up very well.

Here's mine, rattle canned:

Unfortunately, it's not color code matched. However, I've bought color code match paint before from Express Paint. The color I used on my engine bay was high temp Ford Blue I got from Auto Zone.

I think that body color match would look sweet. or gold too. not a real bright flashy gold but whatever yo use on the calipers i think would look sweet. you could go to a local body shop and have them mix and spray the paint if you do the work and prep it would cost much and would hold up better than anything else.

Don't you have to get a new valve cover gasket for when you put it back on?
