I have never seen anyone do this. Great idea to set your car a part. That with your valve covers make a nice look. Sounds like you are still tweaking it a bit. Another suggestion is to add a sticker for 242 CI (I think that is what a 4.0 is) that looks look like the old style. Just a suggestion. Great job thining out of the box. Keep up the good work.

Did you just paint your valve covers or did you buy aftermarkets? I hate that there aren't a lot (if any) aftermarket valve covers for the V6. Having them powder coated or painted has got to help with keeping them clean compared to the factory rough plastic.

yeah exactly! but I think it's a 245, anyways how would I get someone to print me up one of those orange stickers because that would be perfect, but I painted the valve covers myself with the same blue paint, it wasn't to hard just time consuming and you have to do a little Manuvering to get them off and on the car. as far as I know there are no aftermarket valve covers for the 4.0 and I think it's stupid because some chrome ones would be very nice

Not my cup of tea, but you did do a good job. It is most definitely unique

I prefer a more modern tech look. This isn't something I think looks good. Just my own opinion.

I think it looks great - agree with the part of painting the entire thing to look more like an air filter but overall - looks GREAT! As for a wannabe muscle car, not at all. The point of a retro muscle car is to mimick an older muscle car and you're doing just that - love it! :bigthumbsup
