Looks good! Who or where did you get your valve cover done?

Thanks! Did it all myself. Used the same kit I used on my brake calipers from g2usa.com. Painted the SC too. Covers from GRP and decals from acromann.com.

Should have asked this the first time, where'd you learn to do it?
A little bit of internet research/YouTube. I did my wife’s Porsche Cayenne S calipers acid green and did Porsche decals. Then just recently did my Elise calipers using the same methods.

I pretty much try and do everything myself to save a buck.

Thanks for the info... I assume you actually took the valve cover off to paint it? From videos I've seen it looks relatively easy to do, but I'm no mechanic.

Yes it’s an easy task to do and nice to inspect the cams. While you are in there replace your lift bolts.
