I fail to understand why anybody would buy rusty chrome valve covers that need to be rechromed. The rust leaves pits that are tough to buff out in the chroming process. This just adds to the expense. Why not just get a decent pair of painted valve covers as they are usually not rusty? The painted valve covers are the same part, usually less expensive and easier to get chromed.

Agree with that completely...Also consider the Scott Drake repops look as good as originals, and cost less than re-chroming.

Remember that the key word is that for me it would involve shipping to California which Ebay figures much higher from Pennsylvania. Being as you are in Pennsylvania the shipping is much less.

Now I'm really confused. I clicked on the "shipping details" link, and changed my default ZIP Code to my sister's Novato CA Zip Code: 94949. The rate didn't change from the $9.90 Expedited Shipping (USPS Priority Mail®) :?

These covers appear better than most used ones but they also appear to be really dull.
