Might be cheaper to get the one you have chrome plated. It's worth visiting a local place that does this and see if they can do it as a one off for a reasonable amount..worth a try !


Polished Aluminum ones are available on this side of the pond, but I personally do not rate them any better than the factory one. Why the obsession with bling? If it is just to make the engine bay look good, I personally do not think they succeed any better than a clean nicely painted one. If you need some leads as to where to look for a polished aluminum one, post back here and I will get you a link.

hi Paul, I would like a polished rocker box because my engine bay has a rather drab appearance so I thought a chrome or polished alloy box would cheer the bay up a bit and take the eye off the flaws, but thanks for your input, I would like a link if that's o.k cheers Don.
