Those were made by Dean Daniels at Weslake Heritage.

His company is now dormant & he has disappeared off the face of the earth.

The guy making the different ones was my mate Rich. He isn't doing them anymore.

I wonder if you could get a new alloy cover and either:
Build up the logo area with weld and get it milled out to the logo you want
Mill the cover smooth and mill the fins and logo in the same as the Weslake (depending on the thickness of the top)

Obviously you could mill or cast one from scratch, but that’d be expensive just for one
