See through timing case cover

Anyone try one of these? I'm not sure it has any practical value, but I kinda like it.

It reminds me of old hotrodded VW Bugs. It looks pretty now, but remember all that black belt dust that collects on the inside of the covers?

Here's the pic from the ad. I think it's cool simply because it shows the complicated nature of the balance/Timing belts

the de-luxe version has a built-in vacuum nozzle woking off inlet manifold pressure to clean the plastic free of belt dust.

I might actually like one of these - so I could hand-rev the engine while watching the belts for any signs of misbehavior. Sure I can simply remove the upper belt cover to do this...but not likely in the rain in the parking lot of a 7-11 (or on the way to a business meeting, for that matter) when I think I hear a belt acting up. Think about it!

....ok, there'd be a bit of belt dust possibly obscuring the view - but when this turns to belt bits (which I bed I'd see stuck to the inside surface of this cover)...I'd want to know about this sooner rather than later.

Some of you guys are downright paranoid...

And I love to watch things work, but I see this as a good means to separate me from 120 that I could put to much better use....

A friend has the plastic see-through belt covers and in no time they are occluded by black dust and other debris - making them not see through. They are expensive also for what they are - molded plastic. He said there is more up keep on the covers than the belts themselves, and heaven forbid should they get scratched, inside or outside or even when cleaning.
