powdercoating?

i don't know if this is a repost or not... but i have a question...

is there anything on the celica that looks good powdercoated... besides the rims and the Intake...

i'm wondering because i have a friend that does powdercoating and i was going to have him powdercoat something on my car and then i can put his business cards on it when i take it to shows... but i have no idea what to powdercoat...

i wish the engine covers weren't plastic... i'd just do them

It would probably be kind of a lot of work but you should get the valve cover and Intake manifold (not CAI) painted gunmetal.
