    3 - Coat it and then use your fingers to wipe it off.
    I do the finger thing, another option is to powder it, then sand and polish the fins. All time consuming unfortunatly.

    So, how do you powder coat the valve covers and not do the top of the fins?

    PSS 163 is NIC's CHEVY ORANGE, it is a dead match to chevy orange paint( if you have paint mixed and not buy spray cans, though it's still almost spot on) I don't ever take pictures of things I've coated, but NIC's chevy orange is spot on, I've tried Eastwood's, and Columbia's and they weren't.

    I tell you what....you pay the shipping and I will send you some RAL 2002 powder for free so you can do a test for yourself. I got the RAL 2002 from Matt at Powder by the pound....I think they get their powder from Tiger. PM me if you want to do this.

    This is the color I am looking for. I think the pictures posted seem to red. What do you think?

    Maybe not.
