Default Metal Wire Cover 1940 Harness

Does anybody know where I can find the black metal cover that is held on with three screws to the firewall where the dash harness comes out into the engine compartment? My car was rewired but no cover was re-installed and apparently it doesn't come with the wiring kits.

1) eBay. There's one on there right now, item 173882173210. The seller is smoking some kind of wacky tobacky (listed at $62) but at least you know they are available.
2) Call Mike Driskell.

They are not rare at all.
In fact, I may have a NOS one.

Those covers are out there. Should be able to find a good one for $15-$25(prices I have seen at swap meets). Put a want ad on this site and the Early Ford V-8 Club site.

Thanks for the information Kube. Wanna sell the NOS one or switch it on your car and sell me the used one.
