I think I'll try to attain one of those metal valve covers this summer,just started her up the other day and wire brushed some oxidation off some of the parts still sounds good after sitting a spell,new 93 octane gas and battery helped.The orange metal one (valve cover) I got with the car was an older design with the ribbed look so i'll be putting that out there or trading ?
