Hi everyone. Just wondering on the aluminum Corvette valve covers, was the top of the Corvette script ever painted; maybe orange?? If so, can you still get that script/decal to replace the paint?? Thanks, Carmine.

The aluminum valve covers had no paint on them... unless an owner put it on them.

NO, NEVER!
The finish on finned alum Corvette valve covers was just as they came out of the mold at Hoover (yep, the vacuum sweeper company made them).

This is the correct finish, at least as close as the people who do the best refinishing can do.
The bottom 2 are with and without flash.

The chrome covers are NOT correct, and they are on my T-bucket, a 389 in the 51 Chevy and the 420SB in the boat.
