  • Air cleaner/valve cover color for Speedster

    Recently bought a nice clean '55 Speedster. Engine compartment is clean. Valve covers and air cleaner have been repainted, sort of a deep gold metallic with very flat. coarse finish. Almost like spray for holiday ornaments! I'm not complaining, I've been known to use an aerosol can a few times myself.

    The paint on the air cleaner is in a really bad way, might as well do it correctly. Metallic gold or black? Gloss, satin or flat finish?

    Thanks!

    The Valve Covers and Air Cleaner were metallic Gold, Gloss.

    Not Bronze or Coppertone as some I have seen re-painted.
