I made one almost the same. Still have it.

I used the 2 Holden bottoms. 2 Holden filters.

The filters were a bit exposed but it wasn't a problem.

A piece of approx 3mm flat plate with about 6mm folded down each side for strength.

I painted it crackle black. The crackle black was very durable.

I'm pretty sure my carby linkage is different than yours.

It did an excellent job.

Good job on making that ... I love it when people can think outside the box.

I carnt wait to see the finish product, if you spent that much time thinking and then creating this master piece ... Well the rest of the car is going to be a "summernats winner for sure"
Not sure the Black power coat is the way to go ? ID be more inclined to paint them gold to make them look like a factor NASCO part ? BUT THATS JUST ME,
its your car mate, and you do what you like,
Keep the pics coming mate

Because it's only an image he reprints/copies it out onto decal paper.My mate here wanted some Honda Elsinore decals he just took photos of them and gave them to a signwriter,he put them into his computer and printed them out, got them back and he only charged him $20 or so for 4 decals,that was a few years ago though!...
You've only got to look on Ebay these days to see how cheap retro reproduction stickers/decals are!...

Does anyone reading this have a copy of the CDs of manuals etc that are sold on ebay? With The HD-HR one I can probably help with high res master images for decals, amongst other cool things.

A lot of the repro decals made today have a sun protection ink in them and or a weatherproof vinyl which they generally advertise it in the write up of the product.I've had a decal on a surfboard in my backyard for about 4-5 years now in the direct sun all day and it shows no signs of fading just yet,but the board has,haha!
