Ideas on painted valve covers

I was wanting to paint my valve covers and strut bar. I have a SGM stang obviously. I was thinking red to match the 5.0 dot on the badge but I want something that pops so I def. don't want SGM. Any ideas?!

They're not valve covers, they are coil covers, and don't waste money buying painted ones, do it yourself.

Lots of threads on these. They pop off easily, pick up your favorite color of spray paint and have fun!

Ah well they are listed as valve covers on AM. Ive seen em called both. Yea I decided I wasnt gonna spend 150 bucks on painted ones plus they dont have red when I already have em they just need painted. I already took em of this morning. It was easy but after thinking about it I decided I would let the paint shop paint them. Cuz I want my hood vents painted and my roof painted too. I already scoped out the multiple threads on em. I just wanted some ideas on what colors would go best for my car....I was thinking red. thanks for the info. Ill start callin them coil covers haha ;p

I think red with the SG would look real good.

You are correct they are coil covers....and quite simple to install and give a good appearance.

Is there any way you can get a hold a of this chick. I went to my local graphic shop and they wanted to know if it is aqua dipped or what kind of vinyl it is so they make sure it stays on for a while. I told them id tried to get a hold of her and let them know.
