To clear the valve cover it would scrape the paint off

Looking great!!! Everyone in Canada seems to have so much free time to complete projects :D .

That yellow looks familiar, what's the paint code? (if it's a chrysler code) It's almost Solar Yellow in some pics, but looks like that yellow they painted newer PT's with in others.

Paint code PYH 2003 solar yellow, from srt4 neon, cameras not good so color looks funny.

As for the free time don't think we have much more, winter we take nights and week ends to do our cars...
