Hey, thanks but I definetly want the BLACK like the ZZ430 not the aluminum. I guess I will check with the local GM performance dealer tomorrow (Galles Chevrolet perhaps you have heard of it).
Click, more info on that air cleaner, please.

the black crinkle is through proform which you can get through summit... Its in the new parts at the front of the big book they sell the covers, air cleaner and the timing chain cover I dont know if they are the zz430 type but they look very nice.
MoeSS396, Thanks, those just might fill the bill. I'm going for the Darth Vader look if you know what I mean. Black block, leave the aluminum heads, intake and water pump as is and maybe some colored fittings. Billet pulleys. Very little chrome. Braided lines, gm hoses. I just gotta be different. LOL
What do you think?
I recently dropped a ZZ502 in my '68SS and as you may know they come with the black aluminum valve covers. I also wanted to stick with the same "scheme" so I ordered the exact air cleaner that was mentioned from Summit. The Black one with the red bowtie and "CHEVROLET" on it. Looks GOOD! And pretty good quality also. http://store.summitracing.com/partdetail.asp?part=29962
I've gotten ALOT of compliments on the looks of the entire package already and have only had it to a half dozen or so car show/cruises. If I still had a site to link a picture of my engine to, I'd show you, but...If you want a pic, or if someone wants to put a pic of it on their site for me to link to, list your E-mail address or shoot me an E-mail.

ZZ502, TH400 w/3,500 RPM stall and shift kit, 12-bolt posi w/4.11's. 3" Exhaust with X-pipe and 2 chamber Flowmasters.
Rick D, whats goin on? As for the finish, I used a local company, 'Olympic Coatings', they have a heat dissapative coating that helps shed heat from aluminum. Kinda of expensive, but I did the Alt housing, the intake manifold, valve covers and the P/S pump housing.
But I will tell you what finish I like better....Krylon 1613 semi-flat black. At $2.69 a can, you cant beat it. The finish is extremely durable and wont absorb oils or gas.
No PCV as of yet, but I have been considering it. I have both breathers at the forward end of the covers and will most likely add the PCV the the rear pad. I had to chuck the covers up in the Bridgeport to cut the holes parallel. It took some time but the holes were a very light press fit which made it eaiser to weld and to make the weld look more appealing.
