So what's wrong with my valve cover? Does yours look like this?




Okay, well I decided to shave the VVT-i and the Toyota emblem off of the valve cover. Why? Because it's different, and it allows me to try my hand at bondo (gets you high if you do it in a garage lol).












I already have the metal specks paint on it, but it never turned out very well. Probably because I never put a clear coat over it.

So I'm smoothing it all down, putting more metal specks paint on it, and putting a high heat clear to protect it.

I've been too busy. I just had my b-day weekend, and it was crazy, so no time. I might be able to get it done tomorrow.
