I learned the hard way,
thats why my intake manifold is now painted black with another new set of valve covers and I had my painter clear coat them. Well to be honest thats not the primary reason why I needed to change the valve covers a second time, but my first set did start to oxidize from just a few trips out, had to sand them lightly then clear coat.
