i would try Lakewood first, never seen a stock plate fit a scatershield correct. make your own, get a piece of cold roll in the gage you need, doing it this way also can take care of a mid plate if needed

RE: 429 Scattershield block plate................

I tried to buy one from Lakewood to go with THEIR scattershield but they said that they used ALL of their 429/460 plates with their housings and could / would not sell one separately. Ironically, you can buy a plate from them for a SBF or an FE for about $50.00 /$70.00. I ended up buying several plates from McLeod that goes with their housings but you will need to trim a lot of excess material off around the edges or it looks like crap. I think they get about $100.00 for their plates. This happened about 2 months ago so maybe things have changed by now, it is worth a call to Lakewood directly to find out. It sure sucks !!!!!
