yes most of the engine can be done, including the valve cover. id stay away from pc'ing the actual cylinder and would opt for a different process.

you can actually just spray paint the actual jug/head i did it on my banshee i actually did it 2wice once with a deep red and then (only thing bad about it ) i spily a little gas on it and it melted off then next rebuild time i painted them a sweet silver you dont need hi temp paint just regular old rustoleum paint (for metal) and get the color of your choice i never had a problem with it burning off or anything like that it works and would work for you too if thats the look your going for . . . . :devil:
