Anyone repaint the valve covers on the 4.9L???


Recommended Posts

Ive seen this on other caddy 4.9's too and I was just wondering what some have done to the painted area of the valve covers.

Could I just remove all the paint then repaint it all silver again then paint the letters red by hand?? I know id have to do alot of taping of the area around the engine but I really dont like how it looks with a big chip in the middle. Or should I scrape the chip area and just paint that instead of the whole thing.

Here is a Picture, please excuse the dirty engine:

If you try to just repaint the chipped area it will probably be pretty hard to get a good color match. Might look better if you start from scratch. Either way be sure to use engine paint (heat resistant).
