? Type Tensioners for 67s Rebuild??

My 67 911s engine is being assembled. My builder has suggested to use later style chain housing in order to use hydraulic tensioners. My problems is that I want to keep the external appearance of the engine factory original. I am not keen on having these hydraulic lines show as this will detract from the car's originality.

The early cup style tensioners are out of the question as these are very prone to failure and take time to build up pressure.

What is the consensus out there with early 911 owners?
