Made mine years back with mdf plates layered as negative mould, bits of polyester coating and resin and a free afternoon...

Very very nice! (and the air sucker behind too! )

but you cheated!!

Where is the hood lock!!!?? :)

I recall that to define the shape to cover that thing and allow the mechanism to move freely underneath was the most challenging.

Do you have some picts of your vents covers? That's also some of the cheap plastic crap I want to trash and replace with alu..

Yours seams pretty cool too!

Yeah, it made it easier without the hood latch.  I just use the hood pins.  I even closed in the hole on the underside of the hood to clean it up.

The cowl vent covers are the billet ones from Eddie Motorsports.  They are better than the plastic ones, but Maybe not exactly what I wanted.

Bit pricy for easy machining and $5 worth of metal, but they surely look good. Much better than the original.

I plan make mine for ages and as I've bought a big fresh aluminum 3mm plate last week, it's time I look at these.

I'm after ways to fix them onto to the cowl vent. On pict on Eddie site, looks like you need drill the lip they rest on, or is it some kind of lip with a retainer that gives

you some kind of sandwich to hold them in place?

yeah I thought so, the holes are way too near of the edges to not force you to drill the lip....

No probs, I'll figure out something while busy...
