Default 1980s Cessna 180 kit 107 inch WS Cowl

Hello everyone, recently bought an old kit from an estate sale thatís from the 1980ís that came complete with fiberglass cowl. Iíd like to duplicate this old cowl so I can preserve the kit and maybe even cut a few more of these kits from the plans down the road.
Question is: how can I replicate this vintage fiberglass cowl without destroying it? Iíve tried matching it from fiberglass specialties and fiber tech with no luck. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

You can make a mold from it, will not destroy the cowl. I see it has a parting line so a two piece mold would be necessary.
