Engine dress up

I painted my valve covers, it was a very in-expensive process! Cost me around 20$ all together. Tell me what you guys think. I would love to share how I did it. And post pictures of you valve covers/ dressed engine!

Thanks! No, it wasn't to hard. Had to take out my intake, and disconnect a few lines. But overall it was pretty simple.
