Saw a valve cover for sale at a low price and wondered how it would look all polished instead
of matte painted. Anyone tried this?

Once polished, it takes effort to keep it looking good. Polished Aluminium looks good but the maintenance kills it for me.

Well, that might look purdy w/black plastic contrast. Just make sure it is one that fits your rocker towers, floater type or spark plug tube type.

I sprayed my GRiSO's covers with a high temp cast-iron metallic paint after a light scuffing achieved on a get off. Looks great to me!
