Default Custom coat hook finished

I posted about welding intake and exhaust valves a few days ago and said it was for a coat hook. Well I got the coat hook finished and I thought some of you might like to see it.
I may need to repaint it though.....

About a month ago I was walking around my FIL's pole barn and he was trying to give away some of his stuff since he's trying to slowly clean it out. He had these valve covers sitting on a shelf and said "These are from a 1959 Ford Y-Block, I'd like to sandblast them, paint them grey, and hang them on the wall someday."

I "think" he said grey....

I knew his birthday was coming up so I thought I'd take care of that little project for him.

He calls his place "Thunder Road Garage" He has a big crankshaft mailbox with his logo on it, another big "Thunder Road Garage" sign on the front of the pole barn, even one of his old Ford trucks has the logo on the doors. He's big into 50's Ford trucks.

I found the correct valve cover stickers online but I won't stick them on until he's ok with the color. They are just sitting on there right now. His pole barn is red so I used red for the vinyl decal at the top.
