I'm thinking about painting the engine covers, but I'm looking for any ideas on what I should do - both in terms of paint schemes and powdercoating versus high-temp enamel. Anyone have any opinions?
I do want to keep the car looking mostly stock, so nothing crazy in terms of colors :)

If you can find a decent powdercoating shop in Florida, powdercoat is what I would do. Where in the Sunshine State are you?

Those cars are pure $ex in stock form. They bear beauty everywhere :blink: !
Unless the main purpose is to make a show or race car, I'd vote to leave everything stock.

Maybe you can buy a spare cover and paint that one?
That's what I did on most of my mods (front end, wheels, etc.).

I'm going to go with the Korman-style look. I am slowly turning mine into a show-ish car (I don't want a garage-queen only for car shows) so it'll be a "show" car that I weekend and fun drive too (or when the other car is down for maintenance).
I have both parts off the car right now, I'm doing a valve adjustment so I figured I might as well do this too. Now for finding a place that will sell me the paint I need!
