    Hey guys as title says- Looking for a nice strong looking set of valve covers. I really like the construction and looks of the Profom brand and been leaning towards the polish with black background making the bowtie and chevrolet pop real nicely, if any of you have those type of covers please post some pictures if you can!
    If you also have some nice looking covers feel free to post as my ears are open to all different options!

    Thanks

    I have the bare aluminum version on my 383 and they are great. Perfect fit, super solid and they look great. I was a bit worried at having screw-in baffles, but they work and the screws provided are good quality. I was able to cinch them down as tight as I wanted with loctite and they are very secure. Used good quality gaskets with a solid core. No leaks or shifting.

    Polished aluminum valve covers, are a pain in the ass to keep clean!! If you touch them with a sweaty hand,arm,fingers, that's it, gonna leave a mark of some kind. I've waxed then, used WD40, even thought about spraying them with clear coat but haven't.

    I wish I could have found a set of center bolt covers that fit with my roller rockers. My slant ones are great, but I also have both mounting options with the ATK heads and I wanted to stick with center bolts. What are you running for rocker arms?

    I have full size roller rockers under those. Same covers they are putting on the newest ZZ motor which also come with roller rockers now.
