Default COP idea

Has anyone thought of modifying the actual valve cover to make the toyota COP's fit better? i see that the alu bar bolted over works, but i'm thinking that eventually someone will come up with a pretty looking COP solution. if that someone is me when I get to it, so be it, but if someone gets to it first, I'd like to see how they do it.

It's been done. Weld studs to the valve cover. Or CNC a plate that bolts down flush with the cover that has studs on it. I think Brain's method is good enough though.
