Does anyone have a source for the threaded plugs used in the Boss 9 heads?

Try Steve Strange in Las Vegas. His ebay handle is 'bossniner'.
Current lifelong project:
1969 Mustang Fastback/FOX chassis, 6 speed, 4 wheel discs, with a modern Can-Am 494 (Boss 429), Kaase headed, intake mounted with a 1425 cfm 'B' Autolite Inline carb, ala Trans-Am style…Whew!

Made several runs of anodized billet head plugs based on original blueprints some years ago after I found out the commercially available aluminum plugs didn't work well.  The plugs I made were just like the originals.  Guess its time to make some more.
