Seeking pics of Points ACG covers

Hi all, I'm thinking of swapping out my Points cover and am seeking inspiration.
I'm probably looking for something brass or black but just not sure what I want yet. So hoping to get an idea of what's available or what people have customized to fit in place of the stock one.
Hence this call out/invitation/request to show me pics of your pointcovers. Ta!

Contrast cut black ones from motone look as good as brass with a little more subtle style, they've got ribbed and union jack.

Thanks guys, it is great to see the various covers on the bikes! Much appreciated; it helps me visualise the overall picture better. But it's not really making my decision any easier as they all look great
I think maybe I'm leaning towards the Motone Union Jack. I love the all brass one against the chrome, but it'll be more of a contrast against the flat black of my bike, so not quite sure. The contrast cut one is very cool. But I have to admit I thought there'd be more out there that my Google searches weren't giving me, but it does seem like Motone and Triumph are the pool without starting from scratch as a one off.

Hi Trace, this obviously is an aesthetic decision. As for my choice: the horizontal lines seem to compliment the lines of the cooling fins. You have a good eye as evidenced from your very pretty Bobber mods and I'm sure whichever you choose will work with your creation.👍😎

I thought this change would give me at least five more hp
Thanks for the feedback Chico, much appreciated... and yes I'm hoping it will too. I like the horizontal ribbed versions too... and as I recall the (functional) one on my uncle's old Bonny was ribbed.
