I had my valve covers painted to match the color of my redeye.
I have a son in law that sells paint finishes and he matched and painted
them for me.
This is the only mod made so far.... I have been to several car shows and nobody
has made a comment.
Maybe this was not a good idea.
Anyone else thought of doing this.
I am personally not a huge fan of monochromatic styling (all one color). A little extra pop here and there works wonders. With PCP, silver, Hemi orange, black, yellow/gold, all work well. In the end, styling is your call. If you like monochromatic styling, then go for it. On its own, it look nice. The problem is though that this is a very common Mopar trend. Most people at a car show are going to have similar looks, so it's something people have seen many times before... and the chances are very good that color matched parts all come from one of a few manufacturers, so not only do they look the same... they mostly are the same. If you want comments, you have to stand out more and do something more unique.
I'm not quite done with mine yet. Hellraisin is still an oddball color and folks don't make much for me (and I'm not going to put PCP parts on a Hellraisin car). For now, I'm playing with the Hemi orange. The HEMI on my valve covers is the same color as the engine block. I'd like to get the blower coated in Hellraisin at some point. I'm looking for an airbrush artist to do me a hood liner. Everything else is just polished or either converted to black (tank covers, hose covers). It's not really designed to be in your face, but rather "clean." I also need to figure out how to cover up the washer tank.
I wouldn't worry too much about comments at car shows with a new car (or new-ish within the past 5 years at least). A ratty classic with a leaking rear main seal and finger hole sized rusty quarter panels will likely get triple the attention than our cars will. I can show up to a local car meet and quite literally have one of, if not THE fastest and nicest (to me) cars there... and the only people who want to talk to me about the car are 10 year old kids... which I really don't mind. I love sharing car stuff with kids. It's how we end up with new hot rodders down the road.
