    Just go my new 3.8L long block installed & now putting on the shiny stuff on it; cold air intake, chrome caps & polished intake manifold. Now looking for chrome valve covers. Looks at all the usual places, American Muscle, LMR, PCPony, Dallas Mustang, etc. But haven't found anything besides the BBK's & they have a terrible reputation.

    Anybody got any clues as to where or what I should look for? Trying to have it ready for the APRIL 8 North Texas Mustang Associated Cruise.

    I think the only aftermarket valve covers I've seen are those BBK ones.

    Looks like my options are more limited than I thought. I had not thought of the power coating solution, thanks.
