( Lotus 7) I built the hood and shifter cover and came up with a shifter boot for this customer project.
When a rare Dailmer got backed into at an automotive restoration shop. They brought the Aluminum fenders and inner fender panels to me. The customer did not want any metal replaced as the car was all original and needed to stay that way. I reformed the metal welded up tears and wheeled and dolllied it back to shape.
I louver my panels on a machine I designed and built especially for indy roadster hoods.  The air scoop and the windshield piece are also fabricated from aluminum.

BECAUSE YOU CAN'T LOUVER FIBERGLASS!

Customer was to leave hood as unpainted thus the protective sheet still on the newly formed hood panel.
