I think the extra material that extends beyond the hard panel is folded over and around the sheet metal joint and glued to the outboard side of the sheet metal & the plastic windlace  pinch trim is slipped &  forced over the two, other wise the extra vinyl will pucker. I have been sanding crusty yellow glue residue from both sides of the sheet metal pinch weld area you are talking about as evidence of the way is was installed.-
Caveat- I have not reinstalled mine yet, still need painting,

OK, got it, the GM cover I understand is not period correct, but I can live with that, I will be assembling the motor & trans and respraying the motor with the appropriate overspray like CHICKs engine shots in the car. I gather the fork end got a dusting also, I plan on a partial orange coverage on the bellhousing vice the full spray I have seen some folks do.

Scored a set of headers (Reproduction Kustom 68'version) from Colorado Supplier (I was inspired by Seeing Chicks car at MCACN Chicago Show a few years ago.) Need to get them off to  a specialty coater for flat black treatment.

From Felpro regarding the silver coated gasket availability.

Sales Inquiry Customer Description : Do you offer the VS 30055C including the dry film silver adhesive coating on the gasket. We used to see this version in Older kits from the 1980's

Here is what we offer now.

What we do offer for this application (early gen Big Block Chevy) in terms of valve cover gaskets are:

Stock Replacement

VS30055C - Cork rubber

VS30055R - Flat Rubber


1630 - Cork-Lam cork rubber w/steel core

1635 - Silicone molded rubber w/steel core

1660 - Composite material e/steel core and silicone coating

We don't offer what he is asking about.

I have had success with 3M Body Schutz & the application Gun:
3M™ Body Schutz Rubberized Coating Black
Part Number 08864, 3M ID 60455047294, UPC 00051135088647
3M™ Body Schutz™ applicator gun, part number 08997 (sold separately)

In my opinion this set up produces a better replication of the factory texture vice the aerosol spray cans.

My Show car is driven in the PNW & gets caught in the rain about twice a year, no sign of deterioration, proper prep & following the mfr. instructions is a must for quality installation and application, It did take some time to practice on a large piece of cardboard to get the texture & application correct before commiting to spraying the car.

I noticed the ACDELCO (Made in Mex) versions are no longer listed in RockAuto, I wonder if these had gotten good reviews.

This is what I am thinking. It would be better thinner but (Maybe?)
2.25" Diameter/.25" Thick Round Acrylic Display Block

The door restoration of the door would wait till the rest of the dash would be worked & possibly after any cert of the car.  Or I keep an eye out for a spare from a swap meet
