Clevelan Rocker cover bolt set

Can anybody give me a correct part number for a bolt set to suit Ford Racing 4" tall chrome aluminuim rocker covers p/n M-6582-R351?? The nuisance part is the 2 long bolts that are needed. Arp sell sets of 5 4.5" bolts ARP-611-4500. Is this the right part? Most guys seem to run studs with small chrome nuts. Thes 2 holes really detract from what are otherwise a clean nice looking set of rocker covers.

Re: Clevelan Rocker cover bolt set

I just used zinc plated bolts. What actually looks better is allen key headed bolts. A place in on Sinclair Rd, Dandenong, Vic makes them. I am sure they'd be available somewhere in NSW. <==thats what my engine looks like with the zinc plated bolts. They are hardly noticable.

My only word of advice on these rocker cover is don't over tighten them. As you'll fracture the cover and snap about 1/3rd of the cover off. As silly as it sounds yes it will and can happen. They crack the covers around the long bolt area.
