Default L36 Engine Cover Mods - Anyone done anything cool?

Hey L36 guys.
Did some searching around, but found very little about anyone doing anything to make the L36 Engine cover look better. Anyone have any ideas? Any pics?
Thanks!

Same principle, different cover. DIY. I've done a few for locals.

Also to muffle any NVH comign from the motor.

You could alway mesh it. I have a pic of my old one before I just decided to pull it off.

EDIT: Found it.

Would love to see a meshed, L36 cover.
It might not be a L67, but us L36 guys should not be embarrassed to open our hoods!

Looks good. Great idea.
Then again, could just clean up and paint my valve covers....
