    So I repainted my valve covers and made some trim pieces for them and I'm debating on how to fasten them to the covers.

    I'm thinking about just using pop rivets for them unless you guys have a better ideal.

    Nice. Thinking about doing this with mine but valve cover gaskets are about $50!

    Can't really justify it when mine aren't leaking! Hmmmm.

    I've painted mine a lighter shade of blue, planning on picking up a YN touchup pen, and painting the fins.
