I think I can get a set of valve covers engraved with 'ST Cocktail Motor'would add to the build desirability.
A set? I think a mismatched pair would be more appropriate!

"Lifters were stock ones I converted to limited travel (about 0.012) for a total cost of about 75 cents. (I spun these with a reasonable spring to 8000 - no problem)"

Is there any advice a lad could get on modifying a set of these lifters to limited travel?
In a word - Yes!

The engraving would be different side to side so that's about half way to meeting you suggestion.
