    It was a long winter but I finally got the engine installed and running in my Barracuda.
    I decided on a new look for my old valve covers.
    What do you Guy's think? Pass or fail?

              Like them. I have a pair of polished MP covers that will be going on soon.

                        That's actually polished aluminum reflecting the white off the ceiling. The only paint on the covers is black.
                        But you have given me a new thought.

                                    Looks great. Usually don’t see white. I did the same thing to mine on my charger. Did the orange to match the exterior. Way better than the way mopar does them. At the time I polished the heck out of them, even took them somewhere and the middle between the lettering still looked bad. This adds a bit of pop and looks cleaner.

                                        So Car Nut, you disagree with how nice @Moparone engine looks? That’s not being very supportive now is it?

                                        Don't take it so personally. It was probably inadvertent.

                                        Nope, he has decided to put a ❌ on every single one of my posts. Not sure what that’s going to accomplish.
