I like it because it blends in, the other one just looked too modern.

How much would that be in US Dollars?  Ever since I mentioned this, I was taunted by Mr. Shields & now You.  Not fair to a cash challenged old guy!

"84 Quid"?

Sounds like more than I would want to have.

I tried eating one of those things once and you know, you can chew on it for half an hour and it still is like chewing on a piece of rubber.  I don't know why the Orientals are so fond of them.  Even the garlic sauce flavor goes away after the first few minutes.

A nice tender piece of codfish is worth 100 quid anyday if you ask me.

84 quid (143AUD), for that amount, I'll pass. Even though it looks the bomb.

Craig, sorry for my absence. I just got back from Michigan and returned with the below attached. It took what seems like almost a year but they are finally finished. Obviously one is yours.

that leaves one up for grabs since I sold my RE.

now they do look a little different from the other one that surfaced here for 84 quid. unfortunately I do not have my RE anymore to see if they line up perfectly but even if they don't it'll be close.

anyone want the second (and final) tappet cover in the above picture?

like a few people already know, I don't have my RE anymore so I don't need it.

Just let me know. And you can ask Craig how he likes it on thursday after it arrives.

Hi Aussiedave,  You will love the cover! It is the great bargain of the decade. One of only 2 made by a Master Machinist. It is really beautifully done. Comes with a fine bead blasted surface you can paint or polish, the Gasket area is smooth milled & ready. It uses your stock countersunk Allen Head screws. Tonight, I fine-polished my plate & fin edges, which will contrast nicely with the other matte bead blasted surface. Hope to message it on to my G5 deluxe tomorrow.  I think we are very fortunate to have scored these JEWELS.
BIG THANKS TO BRANDON !
Best Wishes, Craig McClure

You are so right mr McClure . Seems like the work of a true artisan . I hope Brandon will bear with me while I learn to setup a bpay  :)

I mentioned to my dad how much everyone liked these and he said he could probably manage a couple more if there was anybody interested.

with that being said, anybody interested if I can get a few more made up?
