Dressing Up The 454

I just got these parts back from the dipper. RPM Air Gap with stock looking tall steel valve covers.

Almost $300 but I bought the manifold used for about 1/2 price and the Valve covers came from eBay for $40. The valve covers look stock but they are tall enough to clear my roller rockers. I may do the air cleaner top too. Check out some of these patterns;

I have a rifle stock done in red python and a pistol in skulls camo and I'm getting another receiver done in toy army man camo. My first thought was to do just the manifold in carbon fiber print but they said it wouldn't look right with all the compound curves.
