  The rocker covers are a nice change from the oem covers. Looks great!

Always liked those valve covers but do they fit in a BOSS 429 with the same amount of room at the shock towers.
Or perhaps I should ask what you are putting that beast in ?

They will fit even with the intended Hydra-Boost set up. Its going in a FOX chassis, with a 1969 Mustang Fastback body mounted on top.
