Up till now its been painted or poly'd Home Plates or polished or black fuel rail covers and intake covers.

This is a great idea that I have often thought about.

Hopefully you can think of a way to do it tastefully and for low cost.

Just fuel rail covers

You can maybe use covers off the later model LSX engines that are installed on all the cars.... But with all the work engine covers are a waste IMHO. They keep heat in, trap dirt and dust and make it more difficult to work on the engine. SEEING an engine is better than covering it up. That's one thing that I HATE about new cars today. You are looking at a piece of plastic in the engine bay, To go with the plastic all on the body. Maybe if you want to hide a leak or two they can be ok. Just changing a PCV valve turns into a big deal with an engine cover on a new car!
