Default Re: before/after .... valve covers

thanks for the kind words.

Powder coating, never painted.

well i have 4 covers for my ef gsr & 2 K covers for my accord.
So when the mnhonda guys saw them at meets I did an 1 time group buy and sent them off to my coater in GA.

Now i just keep doing them cause I like seeing then redone.
When i get a new shipment in , it's like christmas ever 2 weeks.

And I like knowing that i'm able to give and old cover new life & make people happy.
Sometimes I get like $20 profit, many time it's more like $10 after all shipping expense and packaging material. I guess it all depends on if I get free covers or cheap covers...

The nissian & toyota & neon/dms cover I did were at my cost, just because i never did one before. haha

So far i've done +180 cover since March 2011 to December 2011.


I'm glad you guys like them. I'll continue to keep doing them while I can and while I still want to. eventually i'll get board and move on to trying to get a deal with a company that can do hydrographing.. heeh

Wrench Re: before/after .... valve covers

So awesome. A fresh valve cover always spices up an engine bay.
