Send them, or I can send you this one (easy to do, just time consuming)... It's sprayed Dupli-color cast finish aluminum (as the cover was not up to polishing, it's a "saved" one that was knicked where the large curve sweep is...)...Better if you e-mail at [email protected] ........ Steve

Dan, If you intend to polish them, it would be better to do that before sending... The holes make it difficult to get an even lustre....

Everyone else....
While I'm at it, I plan on doing up a couple of 360 covers as well...Any interest?
On one, I'm trying for absolute minimalist.... I believe I can cut the weight in half and still have full coverage... ;)

:D Steve

Shoot yeah. Can I draw a design and have you cut it? Are you just drilling and dremeling these, or what's your process?

Drill, jewelers' saw and files...... You can easily do them yourself, just be sure to retain the strength needed to control the clutch actuator mechanism... If there is any outward flex it becomes difficult to adjust the clutch properly.....Those internal ribs are there for a reason..................
