Lightbulb Source for Chrome Alternator cases?

Does anyone know of a place that sells these for newer Ford applications (1986+)? Thanks in advance.

When we went to Summit, the salesguy told us they no longer carry a Summit brand alternator. He then told us we "need" a Powermaster. Don't get me wrong, I'd love to have a powermaster, but I'm on a bit of a budget. After thinking about it, we're gonna polish the one we have. Thanks for all the suggestions.

Who is "we"? It would be much easier to go that route, so if you can, give me a number, and I'll give you a call. Thanks!

advertizing anyone...

if i were you, and being on a budget also, i can atleast relate, id spend the money on a buffing wheel and some compound and polish the one you have. that way you can get more for the money you shell out... if its a ford there is a million things in cast aluminium that looks great after a polish... things like, accessoriy brackets, valvecovers, intake, alternator, powersteering pump... all you need then is a couple cans of ford engine blue paint and a set of march pulleys and you have a show winning engine look
