Your MSD box is upside down.Powder coat. By the time I have waisted energy getting material the time to prep and paint it right - the powder to me looks better, cleans easier and is so much more durable
That’s 4-5k miles - getting caught in rain etc . Again just my opinion . I just re did a bunch stuff including the valve covers . Lower intake now . Timing cover , heater core pipes etc .
I’m thinking it’s from putting on too much material too quick. It’s a form of solvent pop.So, after much contemplation, I decided to paint a valve cover. I cleaned the crap out of it. Washed it, rinsed it, washed it again. Final clean was with mineral spirits. Primed with a self etching primer. Wet sanded that with 400. Then I went to work on my very amateur painting skills. It looked great for a while, but when completely dried, I see about a half inch or so on the edge looking dull. Did I not hit that with enough paint, or was it something else that caused it?
Completely opposite of my thought!!I’m thinking it’s from putting on too much material too quick. It’s a form of solvent pop.
That happens when the surface dries/hardens before the solvents had a good chance to leach out. Usually caused by putting the material on too heavy.
