Jim hope you don't mind me telling!
Yes, the Chevrolet script is from old valve covers!

Seen this car in person a few times and these pictures do not do justice to it!

Super clean build with lots of little things like the script that make you think!:yes::yes:

Yep, as Mark says for the radiator cover used the center raised section from old valve covers and formed the rest from sheet steel.

Mark, when we first met is was back around '02, I had just swapped in the LT1. Chevy II was still original lt blue, no mini tub, still had bench seat etc. Always good to see you! Jim
