Supplier of nice center bolt sbc valve covers?

Hey again,

I'm looking for a supplier of nice cast aluminum valve covers for my center bolt sbc heads.

I'm trying to build my '32 roadster without ANY billet. I like the look of the old-style finned aluminum covers (I think they went on Corvettes), but no one seems to make them for the new center bolts.

I'm not interested in using the new-to-old adapters. I've heard they leak, and they cost WAY too much.

So, mfgs of cast aluminum finned valve covers for center bolt heads?

Thanky!

Try EBAY if that your thing, check under "valve covers...usually 25-30 pages.
JIM PACE CHEVROLET is a GENERAL MOTORS PERFORMANCE PARTS distributor. They have a really nice selection of center bolt valve covers. http://www.paceparts.com/store.asp
MOONEYES has some polished finned center bolt valve covers, but you'll choke when you see the price. http://66.216.94.142/
I chose not to use billet on my current ZZ4 motor and had my original steel valve covers powder coated in chromium w/ clear coat. http://myweb.cableone.net/rottie3054/DSC00009.JPG

We make the valve covers, B&B Performance, but we do not
offer them finned. . .although you can have a machine shop
machine the top to give you the look of finned.

Thanks Hotwheels, Mooneyes has EXACTLY what I'm looking for.

I am, however, having a tough time typing with one hand. The other I've got down my throat trying to clear it....

Once again, the board comes through!
