when painting it you should use a primer, mainly one that is for plastics and high heat. Also make sure you clean it as best as possible, alcohol should work good.
Prime it first with a few layers, after that sand it down to smooth it out.
When painting, start with a light coat, gradually adding more coats on ast needed.

Next question (sorry to be a pain)... I am looking for a specific color blue (I know I'm being picky here). The best way to say it is a vibrant royal blue with a bit of a shine. A metallicy look without the metallic in it (Does that make sense?) <img src=/images/forums/snitz/tongue.gif width=15 height=15 border=0> <- The color of this guys face almost? Anyway I can reproduce that with possibly a clear coat overtop or does anyone know a good performance shop that may carry what I'm looking for?

If you are going to say something, make it good or keep your damn mouth shut!
To take off the valve cover you want to take the sparkplug wire cover off then take all the bolts out around the valve cover, the two top bolts on the timing belt cover and there is one more bolt next to the sparkplug hole on the timing belt side.
