Looks amazing! What red is that and what paint are you using for these? I'm getting ready to paint my engine.

neevo said:Joey any tips on how you polish the edges of those fins? Any prep or effort made to stop them chipping or is it not an issue?
neevo said:Cheers Joey for the tips on polishing the fins. Can I ask a final question?
What do you use to polish the fins before paint? Block and sandpaper, a file of something else?
joeyputt said:Brother quadracer351 the red paint that we used on the valve cover, oil filler cap, and the breather can was a automotive base with clear coat. The black and many of the other colors we use are VHT products and I have the part numbers for them listed on the very first post of this thread.
Brother neevo when I am going to polish the fins on an engine I like to sand the fins down first before paint and then paint the head, I paint right over the edge of the fins and once the paint cures I lightly sand the edge of the fins with fine sand paper to remove the paint and then I finish polishing them. I have had good luck doing it this way and I can only remember chipping the paint on one edge however it is easy to repair the paint if that happens.
