What your talking about is not the Valve Cover, your talking about the spark plug cover, and they do make 2 versions of it. DG motorsports makes one and it pwns the other version, DG's is a replacement and the other isn't. I bought the DG one and love it.

i removed the valve cover, not wire cover. and i painted it, not hard. so i suggest you do the same.

i think the blue is fine, its the wire cover that looks choppy. just put a stock one back and it'll look clean.
