I would head for the closest Salvage yard. I prefer the Pull your own part style yards as I get to look for the best looking part. ( look for side or rear impact cars.)

Also I have seem guys put front covers on the back side with a tight fitting oil cap to plug the oil fill hole. ( just a thought.)

I have a set of Aluminum Valve Covers off a 2002 Camaro 3.8L V6.
P.M. me if you are interested in them.
