You can buy a stock cover from late model restoration to cover up the stock blaster coil and ignition.

That's about all you can do, because you pretty much need everything that's there.

wow i don't miss a stock engine bay. if your feeling up to it you can drill a hole by your coil, or somewhere that is centrally located to everything. take out your inner fenderwell on the driver side, and well you'll need to make 2 holes. extend your factory wires and feed them thru one hole, secure them inside your fenderwell and come out the other hole.

yea i don't how much time u have on your hands or how much mechanically inclined u are u but could strip the engine bay completely motor and all... clean up your engine bay and repaint with some high heat engine spray paint and throw every thing back all clean up, repainted, or replaced and re route all your wiring and bundle up as best and as neat as u can and some new wire loom and like some other people said put a cover on some or things that bother u they sell some or you can go to town with a sheet of aluminum or stain less or something ( stainless is heavy tho)... it is a alot of work tho just to make your car look nice but i look at it like a peace of art every time u open your hood that what i am doing to my car but i am removing alot of stuff power steering a/c batt to the back but u don't go to go as crazy as me those

just me and my hatch

Me and my budy unplugged everything and re routed it in the fenderwells. it took a little bit of time but the end result was well worth it.

i did mine in 2-3 days, but i took a lot of stuff out and didn't havea lot of the stuff there either. i think a solid 5-7 days start to finish with a couple hours a day, and then a good portion of saturday sunday.

I'm planning on hiding a lot of the wires and hoses when I take my engine out this year...

You'd be surprised how much better it will look if you just clean it up. Give it a good hose down, and get a can of tire shine. Spray the tire shine everywhere (make sure to cover up electrical stuff), wipe off all the real nasty parts and then spray it all off.
