Well, i'm steering clear from the Old RED, its been on the car for years and its time for something new and nobody does any of this yet i dont believe..well i'm sure one color at least but anyway

I'm goin for A new look on my integra, i have a jdm red type-r valve cover, which to me is played out..

White or Jun Yellow just pick one, i'm not doing any other colors but those two, cause i'm painting alot of stuff right now on the car..i'm painting my rs limited subzero's broze, their white now, and i'm goin to paint this valvecover today..so lemme know your thought s:p~

Verdict is in, i'm done painting it at work...
After cleaning it, i put 5 coats of VHT Black Wrinkle paint, i let it wrinlke/dry over night, and this morning before work, i did 8 Coats of VHT High gloss "JUN" Yellow..
After i scrapped the letters, using two razor blades and Xacto Knives, came out nice..really nice, then i sanded it down...letters are sooo purtttyy.. i put a slip over tape over the letters, and plugs and shit and did one final quick spray..I'm letting it sit in the company truck right now, which its roughly 135+ degs right now...
pics :)







I'll get one final money shot when i'm done.

crinkle is pretty cool, but i dunno, crinkle to me is black or red haha.
