Thanks! Didn´t mean to advertise. I chose the Holley Powershot air cleaner assembly because it had the dropped base needed for hood clearance, and the blue colour of a quality filter to blend in with the colours in the engine bay. The hood is stock, and the hood clearance is so tight due to Air gap manifold and carb spacer,that I couldn´t even use the wing nut that came with the filter assembly.
The M/T valve covers were a swap meet find, they were unused in a box. I gave them a light polish, and I am pretty happy the way they look.

Here´s a picture of the intake manifold during the polishing process. I didn´t
quite get it polished under the gap

What kind of spark plug looms are you using? I'm looking for something for something clean to run on my 351C.
