Chrome Valve Cover.

Anyone have any idea where to buy replacement valve covers? I'd like a chrome one, but an aluminum replacement would be nice too, I suppose I could always paint it. Just trying to dress up my engine bay a little.

You could sand blast yours and crinkle paint it. Thats what I did. Looks good.

Travis,
If you PM me your e-mail address, I can send you a picture of how mine turned out. I didn't get a deep crinkle on mine. Still it looks good and I sanded off the top of the fins to expose the aluminum. Its on an 87-90 VC. I will do my '95 VC when I get the new engine done. It sucked last night having the head on and the 13 point deep well socket won't go over the extended threads on the new style head bolts. I had to bring it in to work to have it drilled out. Kind of humiliating when the guy ask "I thought you had a lathe". I don't have any of the bench lathes running yet. Bummer.
