    Phil at croft castings could certainly do it. But Im thinking it will be pricey. He has cast a few things for me in the past.
    Worth a call.

    Aluminium casting

    Does anyone know of a person or company that could cast an aluminium valve cover using another as a former?? Does Frank at Kamakustom still do stuff like this? Any contact details for someone that can do this would be really appreciated
    Thanks.....Nige
