Painting Diff covers

Do you have to use high-temp paint on them, or will regular do the job?

If it is getting hot enough for hi-temp paint you have other issues to worry about your oil is most likely broken down and seals cooked.
I have never had a problem with just regular spray paint.

Unless you are running paper thin diff covers spray paint will work!

it would definitly be unique looking! I say go for it worst case you get them rattle canned gold, and redo it in black or what ever color. You are only out a little coin for the paint. I went bright ass red, because I want people to know that I spent good money on this shit, and the damn well better know it!

Have you thought of pink

Yes, but there's just something about him. Something around the eyes, I don't know, reminds me of... me. No. I'm sure of it, I hate him.
