Default Dressing up your engine

I swore I would never do this but as the Marlin I am re-building is going to have a low key body I thought I would dress up the engine. Never done it before so what is the forum's suggestions?
Stainless overbraid hose with fancy ends seems to be popular. Where do I find that?

Cheers, Robin

PS - Pictures good!

Have a look at CBS.

Also stainless pipe clips and neat wiring! Stainless bolts and fittings as long as not structural! Knowing when to stop is also good! Peter.

My advice would be to tidy up all the wiring and hide it away so it can't be seen. Loose random wires look terrible ! Also stick with just one or two colours for everything.
Here is my 250 TR engine bay.........
