        Glad you like them Steven! Thank you for your business, your patience, and especially your confidence in my abilities. :-D Feel free to share some pictures when you get them installed ... I'd love to see your car.

        But wait a sec, I thought I was The Mistress, not the master. LOL!!!

          Yes it is. It's one of my more popular powders called "Wetstone Black" and is a very nice match to the factory wrinkle finish. The fins were also polished and coated in "Clear Vision" so Steven won't have to polish them in the future.

            I quote every job individually to be fair to everyone and now bill at $25 per hour. FABO Gold Members are now entitled to a 10% labor discount and non-Gold Members enjoy a 5% discount.

            On these particular valve covers, the bodywork was fairly minimal -- they were in pretty great shape under all the gunk LOL -- but the aluminum fins needed a LOT of work. There are 12 hours in these valve covers from start to finish.

            My powder supplier has over 6,500 colors, textures and finishes available and there are probably at least fifty different wrinkle colors available. The Wetstone Black shown above is my most popular wrinkle finish due to the number of Mopar restorations I do.

            Thanks for the kind words!!! :-D I love my "job."

                      Thank you Ulf. Don sent me a message advising your valve covers were on the way. I must admit I'm a bit nervous about the prospect and truly hope I can do them justice. I've worked on some high-end cars' parts in my day but never anything as "correct" as yours. I appreciate your confidence and hope that it's not misplaced.

                      I'll let you both know when they get here! :-D
