i am working on getting to supplys to mould than cast the left cover for the batt.
seems a good place to try a start.
will most likely start with unpigmented plastic(white).after i get some pigments i can cast any base color.

I for one have never lost a left side cover... possibly? the demand for left side covers comes from owners not checking that the side covers are firmly put back in place. ?? As long as all three mounting pins are fully seated into the rubber grommets i see no reason why so many get lost. ! i use a little good old fashioned "SPIT" to lube up those three side cover mounting pins. ! Give them a hard thump at the three mounting grommets. And they stay put. !!.... i own an '83 interstate. it could be just a thing with he 1500's not sure... i see a lot of those side covers listed on "FLEA-BAY"... :-)
