Coil pack covers.. Tips?

Does anyone have the coil covers from Holley,Edelbrock,ect. that give the engine a big block look? I dont know if these fit are cars or not. Looking into dressing up the engine compartment a bit and the coil packs are an eyesore. If anyone has tips or pics I would love your feedback. Thanks!

I'm working on a "new" coil cover that will be a different approach than what's available now. I've been looking for something to make the old school look that fits and is a relatively easy install. I hope to have the proto-type done this weekend. Stay Tuned...

I just picked some up today. So far I can already tell that there is some trimming to be done. Do a search for holley coil covers and there is like two threads four or five down on the list where someone has already trimmed theirs. I will try to remember to post pics after mine are trimmed and painted. Hopefully by the end of the week.

Cool, I would like to see what you come up with. Not much out there in terms of covers.

M miller. If you do not enjoy fabrication then I would not buy these. I personally do so I will still finish them. I will be a little longer than I had hoped though. Hopefully I will be done by Tuesday.

Yep, I looked at the Holley's and decided if I was going to cut them up that much I would just do something that looks better (IMO) and is a little cheaper. I hope to get my done this week end and get them posted.

Had a few problems with the passenger side. Going to have re-order blanks. It will take at least a week to get them made.

We will also be doing units without the coil mounting tabs as well as we can offer units for other shops and vendors with there logos etc in them as well, custom covers are also a option for the car guy building a vehicle to a theme, we can offer them in a anodized color option with custom engraving as well.

I have the holley covers cut and painted. Just waiting for the paint to cure so I won't gouge them. Pics up soon.

I got them on. Paint is not an exact match, so I will be pulling them and repainting them, but you get the idea. I will also be cleaning up the engine compartment in the near future.

Looks good! I can't tell the paint is not exact, but I will take your word for it.

Plastic. Checked them after a drive didn't seem any hotter than the stock one.

Met with a local machine shop this week and we are going to cut our first-run set to demo with. I'm really pleased with marked up/trial cut up set. These are going to be a completely different looking coil cover from anything I've seen. I'll post pictures as soon as they are machined.
