Not done yet Blake, It'll be added along with the other parts, the Corvette had more of a lid then a cap, that covered that area atleast according to the kit and reference I have found.

It's called an ignition shield, Blake!!! All older model Corvettes that had a radio had these installed for shielding to prevent engine noise being transmitted through the stereo because of the fiberglass body. The only Corvettes that would be correct with a regular style distributor cap that would be visible would be a radio delete car, where there was no stereo ordered from the factory. The way Nick is detailing this is 100% correct for a Vette with a stereo, as most of the connections at the distributor will not be seen once the shield is in place.

Great work so far Nick and wonderful reference work! B)
