Have'nt seen one here yet?

Be sure and add some cooling mesh or open holes to allow the engine heat to escape, it can get hot under there

I'm not sure I'd like that. Over time, it would show scratches. Just mesh your existing cover in a unique fashion.

The idea was to cut and mold the plexiglass with a pontiac emblem and have a light behind it when the hood opened. More for show than for practicle use. Perhaps with a yellow star or something on the inside. I saw another member with one, thats what gave me the idea. He had red stripes on his to match his valve covers. Looked real good. Again it wouldnt be meant to cover the engine but rather to look good... I don't remember who the member was now Ill have to look it up.

Need to find a way to keep the road splashes from getting on the back side of it. Or only have it on in good weather.
