Figured if I'm gonna make the motor cover realistic and functional I mine as well add a screen so nothing gets in the carbs.

Found an old pair of headphones with a screen so I took one apart, shaped it, and cut it out. Then made another bottom piece with beveled edges on the inside so the screen sits flush and on the outside for looks.

Just about finished. Still needs some cleaning up.

That's it for now. Opinions welcomed.

Had to drop the radiator down as much as possible to make everything fit for future plans.

I really wanted to attempt to make the motor cover functional not just show. I'm gonna use one of the many plastic spoons I hoarder that my wife says I'll never use to help me achieve this.

I took some vice grips, old tree scrap, and cut right down the middle to give the motor cover a better edge. Also added a piece to the bottom with a hole.

Before I smoothed the motor compartment I thought it'd be cool to make a motor cover out of the first hood that I tried to alter for new body lines.

I wanted to make it a similar shape as the hood ornament
