If one had access to simple metal fab tools, one could pull the diff cover and model a new one based on that.

Band saw/substitute
Drill press/substitue
Tap set
Mig/Tig welder

That would cover it pretty much, other than the steel and measurement tools.
It's not exactly precision work, there is a reason you can use RTV in place of the diff gasket.

Or fork over $275 for a casting that you won't use for anything other than bling bling

I don't believe so. I haven't personally heard anything of it yet.

They won't be that much more inline with other fabricated covers.

Then you sir, have my purchase!
I'm sure the attention to detail and quality will be just as good as the other products you have fabricated in the past!

Post pics when you get your first one done!

Id be interested aswell. I would rather wait for a full cover than the guard that is made for us.
