Cool

Moroso might still market V/C spacers. Check their catalog. Another suggestion is to take a V/C gasket to your local machine shop and have him laser cut from alum a set of 1/4" spacer(s) and stack them on studs in the head

Guy, why not use the stock chrome covers. Check this link www.chevelles.com/forum/Forum9/HTML/005143.html
