    Yep, I didn't mind that version, don't mind the latter version either, but to eye candy distracts from reality, have you seen the build log of "Baby Moon"
    over on overclock net, Awesome how he made a bit of flat alloy like a blower pulley, I've gotta try that out on something:thumbup:

    Mark Hamill!

    Absolutely! I did this Corvette Cowl inspired Bezel cover in 2006

    "Vette-style" hood w/ high rise cowl induction. This will be covered with fiberglass filler. It will cover the lower portion of the front bezel. It will attach w/ it's nose downward, via 4 hood pins... so its easily removable.


    [img=http://mnpctech.com/images/thumbnails/280/210/detailed/1/mesh5_09fg-5q.32.jpg]


    The cowl portion will have a intake grill made from Modders Mesh.


    22 gauge galvanized steel.

    Evercoat's EVERGLASS Fiberglass filler
    [​IMG]

    Within 15 -30 mins, Everglass is ready for sanding. Here I'm using a Black & Decker Mouse sander with corse grit paper
    [​IMG]

    After sanding the first coat, I laid the hood against the bezel and noticed the styrene had warped on the right side. I resanded it, then placed 3, 1 gallon paint cans on the hood as the filler cured for 24 hours. Yes, the cans were FULL :shock: Evercoat's EVERGLASS has awesome strength!

    I think GM & Ford spies worked hand in hand on the shape,
    The "Vette" & "AC Cobra" are like looking @ a well groomed Full Figured Lady;)
    The passion you & your team exhibit shines like a Candy Apple Red paint job in any light :thumbup:
