Hi Artur,
LDMCC do valve covers for the EW. They come rough cast but a little fettling and polishing will see them good.
Hope that helps

Hi Artur,
did it myself from a piece of aluminum profile with a saw and a Flex/or Mill. After a bit fiddling around
and polishing...... it looks nearly like original.
I can look if I have some rests of the profile......
Regards Rudolf

Dear Andy and Rudolf
Thank you very much for feedback. I will try in LDMCC.  I have Douglas EW in unrestored condition and
aluminium engine valve cover and nut/cap for cover are parts missing from bike.
I'm open for any proposal about orginal parts.
By the time I will try to get replica from LDMCC.

Rudolf your job is great. Congratulation :-)
Best regards Artur
