I was thinking about that too. But, I wouldn't want to gloss the wrinkle finish.I guess you could use a flat spray finish or try to apply with a small brush.

I'm thinking a small brush is the answer. The black looks too good to change.

Love the valve covers--wish I had done that to the ones in my former Prostar.

I'd use a small foam roller for the clear.

Great mod! I have seen high temp powder look really nice too. I have shot a few things like that before.

Can we see a shot of those thing on the block?

As requested. Sorry it took so long, I've been using the boat (a good thing). Now the Valve covers make the rest of the engine look bad....oh well..another project!
