Timing belt covers

Here's my two cents. Most spiders I have seen (including mine) have a yellow
plastic timing belt cover. The Spiders equipted with a smog pump driven via
the exhaust cam were made of aluminum and painted charcoal grey. 

I have seen a "non smog pumped" aluminum timing belt cover on a 1969 which
appeared at Freakout 94. But that's the only car I have ever seen with one.
It looked as if the owner had chrome plated it or did a really good job of
polishing it.

Has anbody ever seen a grey plastic timing belt cover?

My 1982 Spider had one that was grey.
