Hot Rods Wrinkle Finish

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by HOTRODPRIMER, Aug 20, 2019.

  1. Dana, I'm with you. I did some bits years ago, looked great for a while but cleaning them was a PITA. The texture does a great job of collecting grease/oil in an engine compartment and dust everywhere else. And it doesn't 'just' wipe clean...

  3. I planning on wrinkle finishing these old valve covers I picked up last year from a old high school friend, they are in good shape but the finish is a dull & worn flat black, I'm thinking black wrinkle finish will look pretty good on the 351 Cleveland. HRP

    Danny, those are hard to find, they changed the motorsport to performance, the last set I saw like you have was om ebay and they were 295.00 plus shipping, what did you give for yours?

    I paid $200.00 for these valve covers and they threw the engine in for free.

    Black wrinkled my small block Ford valve covers. Hammer coated the DSCF3462.JPG DSCF3480.JPG interior sheet metal of my Morris Gasser.

    If she does see this post, you will not be getting into that wrinkle you so dearly love for a long time to come!:(

  9. Those look to be exactly like the set I have, do you have any idea how old that style is? HRP

    used it quite a bit on Mickey Thompson valve covers. I'd buy them for 10 - 15 bucks at swap meets, clean ans wrinkle finish them and sell them for 50 on ebay,

    Can't help with any later model ford engine info.
    I was at a guys house out in the country buying some 35 Ford wire wheels and he had about twenty engines in a pile, mostly flathead, and offered to sell them. The price for this engine was $200.00 and he said a relative of his had it in a car and replaced it with something else. I bought it because it had the holley carb, aluminum intake and valve covers. I didn't even know what engine I had until I posted on the HAMB to find out. Plans are for it to go in 35 pickup in the future.
  12. So... people do that on purpose? So much for trying to cut the paint on my suburban fender. It just became “wrinkle finish” and I meant for it to be that way!
