great starting point, no doubt...
+1 Y8S, make a mold, this will help the overall strength and integrity of the final product compared to piecing it together and bondo-ing it...vevvy noice

Looks like a good plan to me. I save some pics of CSR's DIY hood:

I just bought this hood
https://www.miataturbo.net/forum/att...1&d=1198270100

It's not really to my taste, but it's ready to go, it was cheap, and it looks like it's pretty functional.

If someone local wants to pass the torch on with my blue vented hood for what I got in it ($20), they can have at it.

Hmm, might be a cheap project to have fun with in my new garage (closing date Jan. 23).

Not an extraction hood. Just saw this randomly and thought it looked cool.
