Desperate for a quill pedal dust cap

I'm avoiding one of my bikes cause one of the miche quill pedals is missing the dust cap. Its a small thing, but I hate using different pedals. I like so much.

I noticed that crank arm dust caps have the same threading, are there ones that have more of a dome which would work on pedals? Thanks.

I think I have a pair of pedals with one missing dust cover, I am willing to give up the remaining cover if you want it, since the pedals aren't too great. I plan to only use them as an emergency pair, so I won't miss it... Let me look, and if you want it, I can drop it in the mail to you. I will see if it is the right size by screwing it in to the crank arm...

If I find it, I will post a pic tonight.

Unfortunately, the only crank dustcaps I've ever seen are too flat to work on any Campy or campy copy pedal I've ever seen, and I guess the Miche is a Campyclone, no? Plus they all have some kind of hole (usually a hex hole) which renders them useless as a dustcap to protect greasy bearings...no problem when you're only concerned with keeping threads clean as on a crank arm. You may have to bite and pay too much for an MKS as a replacement, or WAY WAY too much for a real Campy. When I'm being a real cheapskate (pretty often) I've gone hunting for plastic caps in the hardware store, sometimes one can be found that will work by jamming/screwing it against the pedal internal threads, sort of crude but I've had luck with it saying tight...sometimes.
