Yep, I could do that one, but all those narrow curves would take some CNC time, so that would be a $125 adder for the pair of valve covers to get that engraved.

Better be careful with the cobra snake design on your valve covers.  There may be a trademark issue, or Shelby/Ford issue.  Just trying to keep the monies coming in, not going out in a lawsuit.  Joe-JDC

I’ve been working the graveyard shift for 14 days straight, averaging 17-18 hours a day.
This far into my shift I start getting really grumpy and worn out.
So “ this morning “ when I opened my front door to go to work at 1:30pm, I was elated to see a big and satisfyingly heavy box from Jay on my front porch!
In an effort to keep my spirits up through the night, I elected not to open it. That way I have something to look forwafd to when I get home.
Thanks Jay.

I got my valve covers last night they look great.  Nice job machining the breather grommets also. Now I can hook up my Milodon Vac-U-Pan system.

I should be machining yours second or third week in October.  Do you know what style you want?  I have you on my list, but don't have the part number you want yet...

Received my valve covers as well.  Now I just need the engine done, and the car that it goes into done as well.  This is my motivation! 8)

Jay: what would it take to "center" the Mercury script and Lightning bolts without the breathers for those of us who have fill tube intakes?

That's no problem Richard, I can move the Mercury script to the center of the valve cover if you want it there - Jay

Jay, I thought I would post a picture of my new covers. What do you think? Should look good on the new motor.

Wow!  They look great Gary, the red paint really makes that Tunnel Port script pop!
