Start of with a fresh set and they will sit nice and neat.
Some of those look way too long.

Or, you could take them around the front of the rocker covers if the leads are long enough. This leaves the top of the manifold looking neater (says he who tidied his up to run over the top)

No gbx, I can machine any enscription or style you like, also can make them to hold any size lead no problem,
cost will be depending on how plain or fancy you want to get, but somewhere around the $100 mark

I can certainly get them annodised black, and even machined or engraved afterwards so the engraving really stands out.
