i think it was 2 yrs. ago this summer i went to a cruise in here in cols.oh. and i came across what i thought were the best covers i have ever seen.they were on a big block chevy and they were like 2 piece in that they connected diagonally.on the inside top of the cover is where the meeting line was and it rotated down so you could open it by rotating it down diagonally and adjust your valves and close it back up.they were made by proform but when i went to their site i didn,t see them.i took the liberty of calling them and they said that they had not made them for the sbc and had quit making them for the big block but were going to start making them again for big and small blocks.this would have been this past fall when they told me to watch for their new site.i just checked and they still don't have their new 2005 cataloge.i did however send them an email to see if they know what i am talking about and maybe we'll have access to them soon.these had no screws or bolts to remove.if i am not mistaken they had 2 heavy rubber straps.it was quick and easy which is what you want.also they were colored not crome.

As far as valve covers go, several years ago I welded on some latches, the kind you'll find holding down the top cover on a tool box, and fastened these to the head and valve cover. It made covers so quick to remove for between round lash settings. Not to mention the you never over tightened a cover and squished a gasket. Made gasket's last longer too. I shoulda bought a patent.

johnsong that is a darn good idea. I have ofter thought about doing something like that to help save gaskets and make taking my covers off easier. Not that I take mine off rear as much as you must when racing but just for the heck of it lol. If you could get them chrome palted or black and get rid of holes on the valve covers it would make for a sleek look.

I really do like those valve covers. The way they come out at the top seems like it would be perfectly fitted for a big blower engine like they have on the site. Sure will will look really good on your engine take a picture and let us take a look! Do bad they are so expensive at $750 I won't be getting any lol. Then again it is a good thing because you can be darn sure you won't see many people with them!
