Personal choice, also cos it is a 3.9 Lt head to gain higher compression.
Note single serpentine belt.

i have also recently re painted my au cover monza red.
and previously it was painted with el cheapo black.

and prior to that the old ea engine cover was also painted monza red and none of them had problems with the paint reacting to the heat..

here is a fresh pic
