You could get yours chromed or powdercoated. Any decent speed shop would know where. I know I've seen chrome ones too, can't remember where.

I in fact baught all my chrome parts from the cummins dealer in Des Moines, Ia. I can get you the part numbers and prices from the night parts guy in a few hours if you want. Cummins did discontinue the chrome kits but you still can buy them individually last I knew. I got all the valve covers, the stainless bolts for the valve covers, chrome upper alt bracket, and chrome heater lines. They even offer a chrome upper intake that is chromed for around $150. I think I paid around $36 each for the valve covers, the bolts were like $10 each, and the alt. brkt was like $80. I will repost later tonight to let you know if I can get you a set if you want.

I got a hold of him and I ordered a set, they are $36 each so $216 plus tax. $228.96 if you don't want them I will put them on my other project. They won't be in until next Thursday. Just let me know.
