Wheres the fun in that? Challenges baby , CHALLENGES! I dont want a one off cowl, I want to be able to replicate it in case I nose it in and have to replace the cowl. Been there, done that, and have an ugly looking T-34 now.
What I am thinking is to take the cowl as it is now, one piece, mount it on a board so it doesnt flex, wax the crap out of it with mold release, then cover it with resin and cloth, embedding some wood around the flange for clamp support, and when cured, cut it in half making a 2 piece mold. I may run a really skinny bead all around the base of the cowl so when the piece is made, the seam can be sanded smooth and not have to worry about filling holes,
