Lon has it right.... down memory lane!
The guy who made the hinge covers was in Santa Maria California. He also made a great spin on oil filter adapter. Patidevco was the name he used for his stuff. I don't remember his actual name right now! He worked at Piper Aircraft and made up a vacuum mold it his house. I was there one evening when he took the plastic out of the oven and sucked it into shape! Interesting to watch. He made his own mold's from wood and the plastic just barly fit in the electric oven. I don't remember the details like temps needed, but he used a standard shop-vac to draw the plastic down.
The last one I bought, I got from Rollo Fox of ACP. "American Corvair Parts" for $75. Sorry Lon, my vary good friend, ... but that was some 25+ years ago and none were left to be found "anywhere". I made another mistake of selling it about 12 years ago. I got $125. Im sure an enterprising individual could make these up again like this fellow did. ....... OK... I'm pondering the thought!

Doing a lot of tooling at the moment, and then back to the Corvair tooling I'm making. Looking good so far and hope the part comes out nice. Probably another week and a half before I get on her again. Some Corvairs guys are gonna be happy. Will let you all know the details when it pans out.
