Pinto alloy rocker cover wanted.

As per the title I'm looking for an alloy rocker cover to suit pinto engine.
Would like one of the JR cast ones with the logo, but happy to consider whatever else is out there.
If you've got one laying around shoot me a PM. 
Cheers.

    Hey Deano, Marty's nailed it.
     
    There wasn't much out there, the JR cast ones with the logos haven't been made for a few years now and Burton haven't any in stock, however from the secondhand ones I've seen the flange is quite thin and prone to warping and cracking.
     
    The IK one is nice and thick aswell as having the torque spreaders cast in making the area around the bolt holes 10mm thick.
     
    I've got a mate that does computer engraving and graphic sublimation so I may have a plaque with the engine builders name or and RS2000 logo made up to cover the IK logo, I'll see how I feel about it when its on.
    Just waiting for some stainless set screws so that I can correctly locate the gasket before fitting it.

    Nice 👍, I had thought this is the one you settled on..
    It'll be the only cover I would have as well unless something is available in USA to check out.
    Remember the Aus cast ones with the F O R D on the cover, terrible with leaks, I used to sell them in the 90s at Quickco Motorsport , not many good comments about those old ones,
    Back in the days when a $150 rocker cover literally cost more than the whole car !!!
