Is that the Olds engine gold?
'swhat I did mine with.


And a couple ideas for the valve covers.




This engine wiped the cam and the guy I had re-do it painted it himself this time.
So, I ended up with this.


I decided to leave the V/Cs like they were. It's growin' on me. Once all the stuff is on, you don't see the red so much anyway.



I used to paint all my model car engines either gold or yellow.
I don't know...just to be different. Makes 'em show up better in small scale.

Yeah, I like that gold better. What I had was a green gold.
I got a lot of ribbing for that being the anti-green guy I am. :redface:
