Powder Coating

In an earlier post I read that some people were interested in powder coating there valve cover because no one makes and aftermarket one. I powder coated mine in my automech class. I sand blasted it and power washed it. The only problem was buying the new valve cover gasket because its 50 dollars and I had a hard time getting the stock one off. But her are the pics

very nice job. I take it that it was not a difficult job other than taking the gasket off.
