Hey guys thanks for the info. On a very few 82 interstates I've noticed a piece of chrome directly in front of each side covers. I want these does anyone know what they are called and if any are available thanks everyone.

If that's the chrome you're talking about, it's aftermarket:

They're called engine covers, and were made by Show Chrome. They haven't been made for a long time, so your best bet is to try to find some second hand on eBay or elsewhere.

I have them. It's a great looking addition to the Wing.
