lots of time and just being careful i can give a list of steps and on the next one i do i will do pictures of it all

1. i use stripper and strip all the paint off the valve cover
2. get out my grinder and grind down the casting marks and the honda or h or whatever is on it
3. sand over the grinder marks with 80 grit, then 180, 220, 320
4. any paint left on in the hard areas i sanded with 320 by hand
5. acid cleaned it with wheel acid cleaner
6. ran it through the parts wash to help clean grease and what off it it
7. decreased it with degreaser
8. acid washed it again
9. put down a thin coat of acid etch primer
10. then 3 good coats of filler primer
11. left it dry
12. block sand the flat areas with 320 and hand sanded the rest with 320
13. solvent cleaned it
14. sprayed sealer over it
15. Then sprayed black base coat
16. then misted a gold pearl, silver metallic glitter and a hint of red pearl over it
17. sprayed 2 good coats of clear
18. left dry
19. wet sanded with 1000 grit
20. got my stencil and my air brush and sprayed gold and cooper pearl to fill in the Famous F's
21. sprayed 2 more coats of clear
22. left dry
23. wet sand with 2000
24. buffed it with compound and waxed it

thats about it lol
