a polished valve cover looks good only if you have the coilpack sealed cover for the center, otherwise, it looks a bit off with the wires sticking out loose

I actually have a polished valve cover with Ecotec painted in red with the black engine cover and it looks really good. I also painted the fuse cover panel and the ecm panel in Black with blue flakes. And I also painted my K&N Typhoon Intake Black as well with blue flakes to match the rest. I think it flows nice under there. I will have to take pics. I have been really really lazy and I just haven't done it. I've had it done since April. LoL! Sad I know.

i did the orange engine enamal on my covers but it didn't stick very well and actually peeled off even before i could clear coat it, so i took normal paint and did mine Ultra silver

Sorry for the delay but here is a pic of my engine. If you look good enough u'll see a hint of blue on the covers cuz I sprayed a light coat of blue on the pieces and the polished valve cover is hard to see but I have Ecotec painted in red. And my K&N Typhoon intake is painted to match my covers.
