Home made spacer?

I have a problem, & I would like some help please.
I had to get some really tall valve covers for
the girdle to fit, & they have large a/n
fittings for the evacuation system, I need
to raise the plenum, but they have no spacers for
what I have, So, I have some cutting boards made
from that hard white stuff, I have 3/8, 1/2, & 1" thick
I want to use one of these as a spacer, (it will be a
good heat stop also from the manifold to the plenum)
with the thin paper gaskets on both sides of the spacer
any thoughts on this?
Thank you,

I see no problem with using what you described, other than making sure it is not affected by gasoline. I would place some of it in a pan of gasoline, cover it and let it sit for a week or so. If it is not affected I would have no problem using it.
