Full-length dust cover with a regular slide?

Howdy 1911/2011 folks!

 

I'm eyeing potentially converting a 1911 I built into a 2011. I'd like to use a full-length dust cover, but the slide I have is a standard-cut 1911 slide (not slab-sided). Obviously this will work, but I'm having a hard time picturing how it's going to look. Does anyone have photos of a full-length and/or railed dust cover with a standard slide?

I don’t have a picture but have seen it a number of times...always looks a bit like a Franken-gun. Kinda cheap, even if well built. I’d either chop the frame to match and add weight with a tungsten guide rod...or save up and buy a slab sided slide to match the frame. YMMV
