WHY NO AFTER MARKET MASTER CYLINDER???

First I'd like to thank all the after market "hot rod" Company's on the great selection of items to make 'your car' your own.
My question is ;Why hasn't anyone come up with a nice replacement for the .35 cent plastic stock master cylinder. If you lift the hood on ALL the high performance Chevy's, its there, the little (leaky) plastic master cylinder. I have seen the billet cover that's available. I for one would like to replace it rather then cover it up. When you lift the hood, its the only thing that looks cheap. (unless you get the new Z/28 with the plastic big gulp catch can) JOKING....
Anyway, my two cents. HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!
Cheers,
CPOBOATS..

Well, technically what you are talking about is the reservoir, not the master. As for why no one makes a replacement? Most folks aren't into the work involved with having to bleed their brakes/system to get a little bling... Hence, the covers that are out there...

worth it though is the clutch reservoir from a Pontiac GTO you get from diygen5, the hose they give with it is tight as hell to fit on though I had to use needle nose vise grips and use a little lube to slowly work it onto the connection at the firewall. The kit was $50 with a cheapo rubber cap to block off the old hose port that comes from the brake master cylinder and a hose clamp to hold it on. The clutch fluid does get a lot more dirty from brown color due to heat......

Agreed. The hyd clutch systems are prone to issues from dirty/baked fluid.
