Are the covers just decorative or do they shield EMI? In other words, is the composition of the cover important to the functioning of the amplifier?
I would say both Bill! Here is a pic from Bob's last one on Ebay with one of the covers off!

Don't waste a good opportunity to shut up!

Good judgment comes from experience, but experience usually comes from bad judgment.

The best thing is to learn from others that have mastered the one thing you need to learn!

I would tell you to go to hell but I already work there and I don't want to see your ugly face every day!
