    what to use- underside of engine hatch???

    Pulled the hatch of my 30 daytona, removed the scoops. will make a new padded insert for top which will cover the holes in the fiberglass hatch and the base should have enough integrity to it to span the holes.

    Initially I was going to get matching 1/8-3/16" balsa and core the holes to match and glass from each side- then i was going to finish the underside for looks when the hatch was raised (nothing special- just HO's wich may eventiully get the raylar kit)

    So I'm thinking I might be better off just to makle a large valence panel to fasten from the underside, cover the hatch holes and leave them for future potential blower use down the road. It's less involved- gives options at resale and will likely look better- cost less. What to use???? Have mirrored blue plexiglass? in my Pantera which is ok but cracks over time- polished AL, Polished stainless, lexan????

    other ideas?
