I saw an interior house paint advertised that magnets will stick to. If you really want to you could paint your heads with that. I don't think it would last long though. It was latex

i know a guy that took an iron head put it in a band saw and cut just a sliver of the front triangular accy mt pad off then jb welded it the the front of the aluminum head . did some fancy filling and filing and it was imposible to see but very accessible for the magnet.

put alot of metal shavings in your paint and paint your aluminum heads. i am a tech inspector and i know alot of cheats so this will work unless they scratch your paint off and you will get caught. i dont like cheaters but i guess i cant do anything about it.

the easiest way is to mix metal shavings like from a brake lathe in with the paint and then paint your heads with it make sure you put enough metal in the paint and put a good many coats on them so it will be hard to scratch through.

just like he said but you can use the 3m adhesive and then sprinkle the brake lathe shavings and then repeat the process several times I would do it about 5 or 6 times just to be safe

yes but, wouldnt any "smart inspector" make you remove the valve cover, and you're busted?
