If you're looking for one-stop shopping of the polished aluminum type, Jegs has got you covered with its Jegs/Wysco Engine Dress-Up Kit. Everything you need to add some underhood flash is here-we'd add one of Jegs' billet aluminum timing pointers ($27) and call it good.

Hot rodders have been slapping chrome Milodon valve covers atop their engines for close to 50 years, so we'd be remiss not to include them here. Of course, the look would be incomplete without a Milodon pan-matching gold iridite timing chain cover. It's a classic look with an attractive price, making it wallet-friendly for everyone.

We could have grabbed up one of Mr. Gasket's all-in-one chrome dress-up kits, which go for as low as $85 or so. On the other hand, this veteran company has a wide array of higher-end pieces, so we assembled our own outfit from scratch. Check out the catalog, and you'll see that this is just one of many possible combos.
