If your looking to touch up the valve cover I found the perfect match, it's made by Dupli-Color paint # BNS0595 Platinum Met . Purchased at Pep Boy's . I had a small scuff mark/scrape on my cover so I took it off ( was doing a valve adjustment anyway ) and brought it right to the store and found what I thought was a pretty good match. Used a 600 grit sandpaper just on the spot I wanted to touch up, wiped the area with some rubbing alcohol , taped off the rest of the cover above the scape and gave it a light spay of paint , waited a few minutes and sprayed it again. Waited a few hours and buffed it out. You could never tell there was ever a mark on it, came out perfect.

Thanks for advice, Guys. I have been playing around with metallic paints from a hobby shop... minor touch up...


... I thought the valve covers would need a high temperature paint... guess not!
