If what you did to your valve covers and coil brackets is how you want it done run with it. In the end it's your vehicle and your choice. Everyone has their own taste on what they want things to look like and not everybody agrees on everybody else's taste.I used a paint designed for this application Metalcast Anodized Automotive Paint Personally I like it the way it turned out.
I like what you did with your valve covers and I would have done the same or powder-coated them if I was going for that kind of look. Since I have the Corvette coil covers I don't need to make mine fancy though.Here's my problem or curse. I am a custom furniture builder making high end furniture for people who make a lot more money than I do. I do inlays, carvings, veneers with high end exotic woods. So naturally I would want to put my own touches on my project. I am not a mechanic but have at one time in my life built and raced stock cars most builds with scavenged parts, building engines, welding roll cages and so on. My build will not be a just another LS in a S10. I hope I live long enough to make this happen. I'll make and have made mistakes along the way and appreciate all the help I have received. I ask questions that some time are ridicules. I am buttoning up the engine and will post photos Monday. Again it will not be everyone choice but it will be mine.
Did he ask for options or other ideas?Just because people give you other options/opinions, isn't a reason to get all sensitive-like. Why else would you be posting on a public forum?
I think it is more like the guy appreciates help & suggestions, but unfortunately, I've noticed most of your posts imply what others did wrong & how they should have done it better.Just because people give you other options/opinions, isn't a reason to get all sensitive-like.

I'll reiterate the public forum point.... I welcome suggestions, if you don't want them, go write a book and put your fingers in your ears if someone tries to give you any feedback.Did he ask for options or other ideas?
Hmm, pretty sure I already did that eons ago, but not in an effort to show any kind of standard. Not sure I ever suggested there should be one in the first place lol.Feel free to start a new thread of your build & show us the standard we should strive to meet.
You know your right and I'm not thin skinned but there is a point when someone says you could of and has not a clue of what he is talking about. Have you tried anodizing anything. I have and it not an easy job to get a desirable product. I tried to do some door handles for dresser with much time and waste of money. And to be honest what I have seen in anodized aluminium is not what I wanted. Also I could have bought new valve covers and coil brackets and hardware. I also could have simply left them as is. I could have powder coated them but you know what I didn't. I did it my way and if it fails so be it.I'll reiterate the public forum point.... I welcome suggestions, if you don't want them, go write a book and put your fingers in your ears if someone tries to give you any feedback.
Could've and should've are different words because they mean different things.
