Default Friday afternoon valve cover fun (warning lots of iPhone pics)

I picked up a spare valve cover at pick and pull a few weeks ago, got around to playing with it this afternoon.

DISCLAIMER: I have factory cam gears and I most likely wont put this on my car. It's more of a "bored on a Friday afternoon" kinda project.

Hopefully I'll be picking up a tig welder this week. If I do, I'll be welding in some AN fittings for the oil-breather system next friday. Any advice on what size AN fitting to use?
