Valve covers...are hard to find...

So, even though Grimace is a 96, his heads came from a 99, which is making it extremely difficult to get him finished up. All I'm lacking is the valve covers. I've checked every junk yard around, called Ford, looked everywhere online. The only ones I've found are those ugly BBK valve covers that look like a rectangular box. They're hideous! And I don't want to spend that kind of money on something I'm not satisfied with. They're Windsor heads, these two extra bolts have caused some serious issues in my hunt. Because apparently they only made these covers for two years from what I've read. If anyone happens to have any that they've taken off of theirs, or if you know of anyone that just has them laying around...how about helping a sister out and letting me buy them? Lol. For real though. I need help. I'm beyond ready to get my car back. It's been 3 weeks now, a PI swap shouldn't take THAT long lol

You should be able to find multiple yards near you that have them or maybe can ship.

Color doesn't matter because I'm painting then purple before I put them on.

Scotty, I've checked every junk yard between here and Jacksonville and the ones that do have them won't part with them without me buying the complete heads.

A friend says he may have some old Windsor heads in his garage, he's looking when he gets home from work today. But if not, looks like I'll be taking up Turbo's offer.

Yeah I mean those are going to look way better anyway.

Hell, join the corral and put up a wanted ad. Someone should have a pair on there for cheap.
