Reply Oliver Chapman says: July 11, 2019 at 2:51 pm lets say you want the valve cover to be blue and the letters red. would you cover the valve cover and paint the letters then tape over the letters and paint the valve cover? Reply Alex Born says: July 11, 2019 at 10:49 pm Very nice Video but one big mistake! Never paint the point, where the screw sits. The paint is a kind of plastic and you will never be able to bring torque on plastic. My english is too bad to explain this but its true Reply William Sloane says: July 12, 2019 at 7:08 pm Bout to do this to my 09 Civic Si but in red Reply Erik Johnson says: July 13, 2019 at 2:49 am Chris, your videos are the greatest.

Awesome video Chris 👍🏼👍🏼 Reply anysnail says: July 16, 2019 at 2:32 am I have an old Honda and today I found oil in my spark plug well. I guess they didn’t watch this video when they painted the valve cover red. When it isn’t 95 degrees I’m going to pull it off, repaint it, and replace the gaskets.

Reply x SIEFER x says: July 23, 2019 at 2:36 am Chris you are the DIY CAR GOD!!! You've helped teach and build confidence and capabilities into so many young and old men and probably a few women, that never had anyone that could teach them how to fix/ maintain/ build/ and paint their own cars, as well as showing everyone just how informative and fun working on your own car can be! Thank you Chris so SOOO much youre THE BESTEST!! 😀 Reply S.A.D Amila Madusanka says: July 23, 2019 at 1:22 pm Hey Chris. Did You paint the full engine bay. I see that.

I'm doing something wrong! I do my 3 coats of adhesive spray on my plastic engine pieces, but then I go to spray top coat color and it seems to just start dripping right away ( not due to over spraying ) seems like its mixing with the adhesive and becoming more watery? Reply iiKei Evaii says: July 24, 2019 at 3:25 pm Loved this video. I wanna paint my brake callipers now in cherry red. You have some amazing enthusiasm. Nice work!! Reply KarlsLabReport says: July 24, 2019 at 7:21 pm Thank you for this!! I’m in the process of restoring a 1989 Chevy truck and am rebuilding the engine. And yes, I’m getting creative with the colors I’ll be painting the engine. Where did you get the logo for the valve cover?? Reply Richard Kvetko says: July 24, 2019 at 10:18 pm "You are going to need some alcohol to clean the part before painting" Sh*t, I dont have any, I guess brake cleaner it is then Reply Russ Lewandowski says: July 25, 2019 at 12:00 am Chris, We always see the same blue safety gloves you wear.

Reply Jordan H. says: July 28, 2019 at 3:56 am In the end you say how you wanted to avoid touching the paint because it was still soft, then you put the valve cover in. How long do you have to wait until you can drive your car or can you drive right away with the fresh cover?

I'm thinking of using Dupli's metalcast green on mine but not sure it will hold up in that area. Thanks for the vid, your paint job came out clean.

Keep it up brother a lot guys and girls can learn a thing or two from you Reply Bogdan Milosevic says: August 6, 2019 at 10:36 pm what number is this colour?? Reply Christopher Ballesteros says: August 7, 2019 at 2:19 am With the plastic cover do you have to sand it down too or should it be ok if it has Pores in it already? (For the paint to adhere to it) Reply V1BoundLessShot says: August 7, 2019 at 12:48 pm Honestly can’t tell you how much I enjoy watching your videos! I’ve started on the alloy repairs and honestly can’t believe how easy it really is! Thanks for making this a new hobby for me!

Good job man. Reply Vulcane says: August 8, 2019 at 1:36 am Is this s good primer to use for car engine Reply glenniz1 says: August 8, 2019 at 3:45 am Chris….do the D16Z6 intake manifold swap, shave the head .040 and install some Supertech valve springs and a Delta Cams Camshaft, you'll see 40 hp, and if you port the head and intake manifold, about another 12 to 20 hp! Reply Devin Davies says: August 8, 2019 at 5:18 am I’d suggest taping holes so paint doesn’t get inside the valve cover Reply Cryses Gaming says: August 8, 2019 at 7:10 pm After any ChrisFix or Humblemechanic video I just want to go work on something on my car. Whether is a wash with Soapy wooter or a body/engine restore. Does anyone else get that feeling? Reply TheGamer J says: August 8, 2019 at 11:33 pm You know your a fan when your car does not need painting.

Reply JaydaHeartTV says: August 15, 2019 at 3:07 am Does anyone know if boat engine paint will work for car engines? I've been trying to find research on it and there is absolutely no answers. Maybe it's a dumb question but the engine color I want (that almost perfectly matches my vinyl wrap) only comes as boat engine paint.

Reply Michael Monroe says: August 18, 2019 at 8:24 am Three questions…1. Did you clean the under side of the valve cover gasket?2. Why didn't you clog the holes to the valve cover gasket?3. Do you suggest cleaning the plastic engine covers with the rubbing alcohol only, or use something else also (besides the soapy water)?Great Video Tho. Thanks Reply Shizukesa GT says: August 18, 2019 at 8:52 am Is sealant not required for the valve cover gasket? Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
