I am repainting the valve covers on my 65 V8 using Dupli-Color Universal Gold, DE1604.

The question is whether the finish should be satin, as it comes out of the can, or should it have a clear coat finish?

Thanks!

I used white primer under the Dupicolor Gold on mine. It was a shade to light. next respray I'm going to use black primer. I like a gloss finish.

Use it straight out of the can - a clear coat is not required. The paint on mine is 11 years old and still looks great.
