Oil filler locations/mod?

I've been doing a little searching but haven't found anything yet. I recently did trickflow twisted wedge heads and tall valve overs...the valve covers I bought have no oil filler predrilled. I think they look pretty nice without the oil filler on them and I was wondering if anyone has found another place to put an oil fillter or modified their valve cover to look cleaner. I just dont like the filler tube sticking out of the valve cover. I believe most chevy's have the filler on the timing cover. Has anyone moved their 302 filler or made it look really clean?

I'm running Edelbrock performer heads with chrome Moroso tall Valve covers with a 1 inch intake spacer for clearance , I pre drilled my oil fill in the back and use a baffled grommet with breather cap!!

Looks really good, be aware stock valve covers have a little shield like flap under the breather/fill to keep oil from splashing up.

Yea I found that out after the new valve covers were on, oil was coming out of my breather cap and dripping on my header .

When you order your breather caps they come with a rubber grommet but you have to order a baffled grommet so the oil doesn't come out

looks pretty good, maybe if I did one on both valve covers it would look even
