Any updates??? I should scoop up a set of covers before I get married! $300 isn't too bad. I remember him saying he did not want anything to cost too much so he must have the tooling to do this I guess. That kind of this can be expensive. I'm happy with that price. Can't wait to see them. I might opt for the 'Lincoln Star' if he has them made.

Got them. I like them.
I have aluminum valve covers from Slover.
Pictures in a day or so.
They have a M cast on the top, no breather holes. Comes with gaskets.
I don't know how many he has, or can/will make.

WOOHOO! Can't wait to see them. I'd go for some Mark II style he said he was going to work on too. Can't wait to see your covers. Thanks for keeping us posted!
