Almost done with my valve covers that I made. I got the color as. Lose as possible to my ceramic intake cover. I thought the ghosting of the srt came out great. I ceramic painted these myself, not bad for my first time. Tomorrow after the paint cures I'm going to add my custom 426 stroker badge that DC customs made for me.

I'll attach a picture of the badge also. So what do you guys think? Please be kind as this is my first time doing this. :confused:

Thanks rock! Wow forty something people checked these out and your the only one that had the good grace to at least coment.

Thank you for that. I guess the rest are just jealous that they either spent crazy money or didn't have the nerve to at least make their own. Lol.

I think they look good, man. Good job for taking a chance and trying something you haven't tried before and then posting up pics for critique!!

I used stenciled cut outs out of sheet metal and tac sealed it and back coated with high temp sealant. Then I finished it off with high temp ceramic to give it that ghost shadow look. It came better then I thought with just enough lift to give it a 3d appearance.

Thanks. I know it's not as nice as professional covers, but I took a chance and it felt good to make something. I was thinking of adding colored strip of rubber stripping around the outline to soften the edges, in either black or silver to match the cross bar and jeep?
What do you think, to much?
