I'm probably bout to paint mine this weekend. I say paint it white with teal letters or black letters or polished letters to match the wheels.

I can't decide what to paint mine either. Might do mine red to match the wheels.

Thanks guys, I cant get away with spraying it teal, cause cant match it. Red doo doo, orange no, gold, no, black, no, raw, no, polished, Too much, But polishing the letters could work brooks. Im just not sure about painting the VC white with polished letters. Keep the opinions comin, Thanks guys on Del sol comments and year, and thanks nuke, but still on bed rest.

There is a guy on the 4g civic UK that makes beautiful valve covers.

He has some cool colors.  Sand, spoon yellow.  Plus he has some cool designs.

Thats your Honda part number for the gasket set. Will include main gasket, spark plug grommet, and bolt grommets.

You can look it up for a 92-95 Civic Si.

Oh and a z6 came out an EG ex sedan/hatch and EG Si hatch. Also the Del slo Si. I think any d series gasket will work though because pretty much they are all the same.

Ok, mom is gonna grab the gasket later today, some aircraft stripper, and some white engine paint. Imma do white and polish the letters. then one day pull the intake mani off and spray it and the block when i pull it cast coat aluminum
