Saving Money!!! DIY Engin dress up

So I want to dress up my engine bay, but do not have the money for the aftermarket dress up kits. Really don't want to spend $600 to dress up the engine. So I started with cardboard and cut it out to fit the area's that I want to cover.

Here is the mock up..........



And some close ups......

I just did the designing/mock up work with the cardboard the actual metal work is being handled by my father. He is a machinist and has access to everything. If all goes well I may make extras.
