Black Valve Cover Pic Request

Hi All,
Looking to go a different direction with my engine bay. I love the look of the black crinkle valve covers but unsure how to finishes off the top (black or chrome air cleaner). Would love to see pics for anyone who's gone this direction.

Pic for reference...

These also have 390 etched in the center of them, although that is hard to distinguish from the camera angle. Hope you can get an idea from this.

I painted my stock ford valve covers a metallic black and really like it.
I already have a black air cleaner but feel I need to paint it to match.

My intake manifold is polished aluminum.

How do you like the Vintage Air Front Runner system? I love the look and am leaning towards it. Super pricey though. Looks great!
