Here's a thread for you guys to relax to. Aircraft paint stripper, wire brush, castrol super clean, towels, Plasti-kote 500 deg high temperature engine grey primer, Plasti-kote 500 deg high temperature engine "aluminum" paint.
Will post several pictures, each uploaded through the forum.

Primer sprayed on. Still wet. Damn plasti-kote POS spray paint bottle - uneven and sporadic application of primer. Doesn't help though that it's two years old and almost empty.

Baked in the oven on the top rack with a marvelous roast chicken sitting in the rack below it. Best chicken I ever had. 200 degrees and about 25, 30 minutes? Not sure.

Semi-finished state. Aluminum sprayed on in many light coats, tossed in oven for 40 minutes at 180 degrees. Right now I'm spraying on more and more layers of it onto the valve covers, will let them cure for a day and then will throw them in the oven for a final time to seal the deal. But this is pretty much how it will look even when it's done.

Hope you enjoyed this as much as I did! I'm going to pass out from the fumes... :wtf:

why not go outside?

When did you get a GTE?
windy and cold outside. i don't quite have a GTE, just a GTE head, valve covers, turbo, exhaust manifold, electronics, intercooler, intercooler pipes, and stuff. :)
