I am having a new top end built on my engine at the moment. Ford Racing CNC'd cylinder head (milled by 0.040" to raise compression), Ford Racing Stage 2 camshafts, Ford Racing vernier cam gears, billet oil pump gears, ARP studs and bolts etc.

I'm just waiting on a new set of solid valve lifters to arrive (I'm in Australia) before it gets finished.

However, I've created a little something to top it all off when its finished, and I couldn't wait to share

Hope you like it!



Bought the stock valve cover (brand new) off a guy for $50

Sprayed the cover with Harley Davidson black crinkle finish crankcase paint.
(Stuffed it up 1st time, had to strip it and do it again)

Got my stainless steel plug cover (Auto Specialists UK) CNC engraved by a company here in Melbourne (Dont ask how much! [mecry] )

Pinched the logo off the web, and the guys in the studio at work retouched and resized it.

All in all I am really rapt with it, and couldn't wait to share.

Generous praise welcome![thankyou]

The plug cover looks great, but not sure about the valve cover. It looks uneven near the oil cap, and the oil cap itself almost looks fire damaged. An aluminum oil cap would look nice.

agreed with the other two guys an aluminum or billet oil cap would be very nice
Thanks for the feedback guys

Given its a half twist cap not screw in, does anyone make a billet cap (or cover)to suit ???
