I would like to repaint the valve covers in the original color, does anyone have a color code for it?

No ... but the Holts Dupli-Color Auto Spray DSH15 - Holden Marina Blue or the GM / Pontiac Blue colour in the VHT range are a close match ...

 

Taken from here : http://www.ausubaru....ght=colour code

 

Add : another site worth looking up : http://www.paintscra...p_paint/Subaru/

 

Cheers, Bantum ...

Not really ...

 

I'm pretty sure they all came out of the factory with same colour, it's more likely that they have faded over time, with heat & oil stains etc ... ;)

 

Add: I'd check that as it may only apply for Australian models, some later models here did have black covers ... B)

 

Can you Post up a pic of yours to confirm ... ?

 

Add : I also recall something about there being variations in cover colours for different capacity / type engines ... :ph34r:  

 

Cheers, Bantum ...

There'sone that has the darker greenish valve covers. Iv'e seen that darker color in them couple of times. In EA71 I have the light blue ones in right now and that seems to be pretty normal color for them around here.

I think chrysler turquoise is pretty close to the color of those valve covers:
