Jay. When you have the time can you meassure how wide  the flat area
where the tunnelport script is. Or actually how high if you look at the script
the right way....

There's about a width of 2.25" on that flat area, but I can't use it all because of the fixturing I use when machining the letters in the valve cover.  About 1.75" in height is about as tall as I can go.  Gary's letters are about 1.5" tall if I recall correctly...

Thanks Ronnie, and good luck on the recovery; was very sorry to hear about the damage to your Shelby. 

Here's a picture of a valve cover that I had polished by Andy Tants, in case anyone is interested in having that done:
