how about bead blasted and then paint?

that'll work...but isn't necessary

Is there any risk of the bead blasting causing distortion of the valve cover?

Also, I presume you are suggesting leaving it in its natural state after blasting it... or is there a polish or protective coating required as well??

blasting won't distort or harm the valve cover unless you have an idiot, that's never used a blasting gun shoot it

if you take the time and expense to blast it, then you should mosdef seal it because it will very soon, again go to hell in a handbasket....

google glistenpc...very good stuff and can be brushed on, no special equipment is needed..it's the only thing i've ever used that's still sticking to the aluminum

I am in the process of painting mine. I used Aircraft remover to remove the old paint and WOW it does an awesome job at removing the toughest paint very very easily. I used Dico buffing compound on the billet and BMW part and that brought the aluminum to a shine. Tape that off and paint the rest using VHT Enamel paint in the same color as the car.
