Today I spent the day waiting for UPS and Fedex. No one stocked valve guides so my head will be ready at 10:00 am CST.

But my valve cover were finished being powder coated.

I was told the valve covers must be baked at 400 to release any gases before powder coating. BMW uses epoxy to fill in any imperfections and powder coating has to be bare metal. But for 95 dollars my valve covers look great.

Tomorrow weather permitting I can reassemble the top half until I get my timing tools.
