Trying to find a decent one for a gift to a friend, I'll pay $1000 for a good one.

Sure you can, but only if I can find two valve covers.

Hmmm! I'd forgotten about Ray Juncal... Gladhill, it looks like Raf S has just saved you about $600.

The recommendation for Lempert Wheels is a good one too.

While Ray's valve cover is very, very nice it just isn't the same as the vintage one that was sold in the 1950's for the Austin Healey 100. It was called the Andronl and sold for $23.95. This is the only one acceptable for concours judging. I'm trying to find one for a concours judge.

Good luck with your search. Fortunately my addiction is not quite as intense. I'm just looking for serviceability, comfort, and reliability so I can drive the hell out of my car and enjoy the wind in my (sparse) hair. If anyone notices my (numerous) concourse deficiencies I will ask him to kindly step away from my car. Healey on!

I believe there's good reason to preserve a piece of art in it's originality. It's really difficult to improve on something that worked as well. I'm not that smart.

I know that because I tried. Check out my white over spruce green 100M on my profile. It was better in some ways and not as good in others.

Well if my car had begun as an original or a surviver i might feel differently about it. As it is a bitsa saved from a crusher in Salt Lake City I don't worry too much about originality. That leaves a lot of freedom for comfort and performance improvements. My plan, once I get it back on the road this spring, is to begin the arduous process of driving the wheels off of it.

I understand that. Here's my V8 M when I started.
