Valve cover mod

I was wondering if anyone on here has done a valve cover modification yet? A buddy of mine did one on his vette and it is awesome.

Relocated the coil packs to hard to see areas and used wire extensions for the spark plugs.

Picked up a set of standard valve covers and painted them hugger orange.

The thing is beautiful and is starting to look like a motor.

Just wondering if anyone on here has done this yet? If so - which valve covers did you get? Where did you hide the coils?

Let's see some pics. Phastekperformance has these new coil covers that make the engine look like a big block. Looks easy to install, they fit right over the coil packs.
