Hard to tell until you are finished but looks promising.
You know when you've done a good job as many folks will want your services ;-)

Good cam cover pain jobs look the nuts. When I was in the sxoc we had a guy that would paint one up, you bought it and sent him yours in part payment.
Some of the ones he did were gobsmacking.
That does look good, mirlock.
