glad to see that you're liking your car more :) anyways...i hand polished a VC before in my old sentra...pain in the ass but well worth it. it took me a couple days to get it the way i wanted it. but heres the basic run down on polishing your valve cover...

MATERIALS:
tape (electric)
newpaper
sand paper (lots of it) various grits needed (from coarse to fine) preferably the wet/dry kind
sanding sponge looking thingy for an even finer grit
wire brush
hand held sanding thingymabobber (electric or manual lol makes it a little easier)
water
metal polish
terry towels
water

STEPS:
1) remove the valve cover (makes it a little easier to work with)
1a)if you didnt remove it, makes sure your plug wires are removed and fill the holes up with some newspaper and/or tape over the holes with some eletrice tape or something so dust and water wont get in it.
1b)if it was removed, make sure you put a towel or a sheet over your internals so no dust and other things get into your oil and cams.

2) bust out the sand paper, and strap it in the handheld (if you have one) then dip it in some water and start sanding with a low grit sand paper until you see that the scratches that are made look evenly distributed everywhere and somewhat smooth, use the wire brush to get into some of the cracks, around the lettering and whatnot, then work your way up with a finer grit sand paper until you start using a really fine grit paper. then switch to the ultra fine sponge sanding thingy to get the metal really really smooth. then switch to the most finest paper or sponge you can find and then work on that. if your ass and your VC doesn't feel the same then its not smooth enough lol

3) the more time you spend on it the better it'll look.

4) get some water clean off the vc and clean the dust outta your engine bay(if the VC wasn't removed) and make sure its completely dry before you start polishing it...when your wiping it down for the last time, make sure you're using a completely dry towel and buff it up until in shines like crazy.

5) put the VC back the way it was and thats it.

tip1: polish you VC every now and then, to keep it shiny, the more often you polish it the easier it gets next time you polish it.

tip2: the more you polish it the more it'll shine and the more you'll smile.

i spent sooo much time on mine that when you look at it, you could see your reflection perfectly, like a mirror and it was better chrome. good luck :)

Someone's rich ;)

Like G-forces said, we want to see some pictures.

Powdercoating would be a long process, so I would say just do what I did - get some high temp paint and paint the sucker. A couple hours work and your end result..

hey man, no prob...i get a little bored sometimes so i thought i'd just sit here and help out a fellow g20er...beside, i'm sure someone will ask how to do it again...if so, just tell'm to do a search lol

i wanna polish mine again, but it takes some time, time i dont have lol

but, i think you should go polish, shows people that you took the time and effort to do it yourself. its also the cheapest route. oops, but i forgot, your "Rich" so you would go for the most expensive route lol j/k :D

kinda sad I say...

But I was kinna bummed I bought a G20 at first!
Hmm.. that comment does make my sad... My car is as stock as the day is long, minus some badging, and I LOVE my car. This is #2 for me. And I've never doubted my car for a second... I actually chuckle that my car is so dope.. I don't find many cars on the road that I envy these days... The only cars I find my self wishin for is newer (much more expensive) imports (Lexus's, BM's, Mercedes.. etc).. other then that.. I've never felt that I need to mod my car to make it what I want it to be.. Do I wish I could afford to lower it right this second? Sure! Do I wish it had 200+ hp? Sure.. but as a stock car? I love it.. I'm kinda sad that you had to mod your car in order to find the beauty in this machine.. Just my opinion....
