    • Tested it out on the rear valve cover first, and I like it.

        • The chrome is a reflective base and provides uniformity, the colors are translucent so they show through. All the layers work together. A lot of work.

          Those look great, nice job, gold covers are where its at.

              • The gold will look good with the blue car.


                Usually you do a partial cure of chrome base for a 10 minute bake, then put your translucent gold coat over while the part is still hot and finish out your next 15 minute full cure. This helps keep the trans gold top coat from seperating from the chrome base when the engine heats and cools. Hopefully it doesn't start to crack the translucent coat and might even peel from the chrome base......

                  I guess I never had a problem with it in the past as that is the way I did my t-red valve covers. I do preheat all of the parts to a uniform 400F (375F for chrome) before I coat them though. In any case duly noted. Time didn't really allow for me to do everything at once as I'm typically working with 7pm-8:30/9:00pm for a time slot during the week.

                  • Ok, sweet- that's good to know that your other stuff held up good. I had some translucent red topcoat crack over chrome . I can't wait to see that gem in the engine bay.

                    • Front valve cover is completed now as well. Just need to sand blast the pulse wheel to clean it up of rust, had to use the one off of the donor SVT 2.5L I had in the garage. Next up is to assembly the windage trayand oil pick-up tube. Then weld up a new baffle plate for the oil pan.

                            • Most of the engine is now assembled. Just waiting on my oil pan baffling to be completed. Did run into one problem, which I'll address in another thread that I'll be creating.
