I'd like to see how the truck paint color blends with the blue covers. Someone please post pics when they get them installed. Anyone know how much a dealer would charge to install these?

Not for nothing... but traditionally (in all of the muscle cars or the 60's & early 70's), Ford valve covers have always been either Blue or Gold.

Mopar had orange for awhile... Chevy & Buick had red.

Moving sucks; I've got to move house and shop in about 6 months. Going to take me 6 weeks to get everything moved and resettled. Sheesh. Good luck.

As far as the covers, yeah I'm really wanting to see how well the FRPP blue matches the Blue Flame. I'm guessing the covers are more of a traditional "Ford blue" and not body color.

Ok thanks.

The basecoat tone/color of the Flame blue is about the same. On the inner edges of the fender and under the hood where it isn't clearcoated is a much lighter/satin blue so the valve covers should blend in ok.

I may just go with black. I hate the raw aluminum sitting there, it always fuzzes up/oxidizes with age.
