    Clear F-50 Louvered hood

    The F40 and F50 both have a clear Louvered hood that I like, dose anyone know what the louvered hood is made from? could I make this myself? I know that 'Norms Fiberglass' do make the f40 one but they don't have the F50 one (which is the one I want), I could send the actual part in fiberglass to him so that he can make it into a clear piece but, unfortunately the hood is too big for most shipping services to ship and costs too much to send by Fedex. Can anyone offer any suggestions?

    It's made here in Taiwan and I have made the clear headlight covers already.

    How is this louver actually made?? what material do they use??

    Obviously someone had the knowledge and tools to make it this nice....Do you know the process involved??

    The reason I'm asking is that I would love to have a similar looking clear hood on my 308 replica (maybe not the entire engine cover but a good part of it)...I have never seen anyone advertise or make clear engine covers like the F50 cover here in the US...I suppose it can get hot over the engine but I'm sure I can find ways to use it...It would look cool if someone has a killer engine setup to showcase thru the clear engine cover.
