AU II Engine Cover for AU I

Those of you have added AUII (or T-Series) Engine covers to your AU I - how much have you paid for the cover?
I just got a quote from my dealer here in Auckland & I can't believe it - $NZ526.70 !!! There is NO WAY that thing is worth that much.

That's about the price. Rob will jump in here in a moment and tell you all about it, as he is also known as Mr "I-Must-Upgrade-To-The-Next-Model-Engine-Cover" :s6:

Whoa!!

Ever wonder if a engine cover costs this much, how much it would cost to buy a unassembled engine from Ford spare parts.

...begs the question (even though I haven't met you blokes... ) could you purchase an engine cover for me that I would then pay to ship to the Shakey Isles ? At even $NZ300, I'm still $200 better-off...
