Figure 109. Today got one of the Proform valve covers repainted. It was sanded down with 280 grit to give the paint something to bite, then the copper LSX was painted. The letters were then masked off after the paint dried enough, then the black was painted. This really looks nice and fits in well with the engine color scheme. It is too bad that Proform does not offer these with black powder coat instead of red.
Figure 110. The black anodized spacers that we had made arrived and to test them out, we installed the coils from the old truck engine. We have not decided yet if we are just going to clean these up and re-use them or buy new ones, but for now, they help us get the engine assembled and give a starting point for the coil wiring. The Proform brackets are going to work very well for this.
Figure 111. Another view of the spacers for the coils. The spacer dimensions are 5/8 OD, 1/4 ID, and 3/4 Long. They are black anodized aluminum. They match the black bracket and black coils very well. The bolts are M6 x 30mm button socket head screws, and the nuts are M6 flanged hex nuts.
