    I cant see a clear bonnet being your style mate tbh. Assuming the ventage is marked along with the additional ones you picked out aswell further back ??

    About right yeah - the front will look similar to the orignal Calibre car, the two side ones using the Mas 3200GT vents. The only way it could be done is by a custom fibreglass mould - at least I'll own the mould though!

    I'm not sure but I don't think black marker lines will let out much heat, I could be wrong though.

    I thought you'd have gone off fibreglass bonnets after the last one?
    Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!

    Yeah - it wasn't really the plan - I bought a metal one first, but to do what I want to do it's the only way

    Once you have the mould get some done in carbon
