Duratec Engine Cover Wanted...Build Me One!

Hi, I have no clue where to put this...I thought maybe exterior forum, but its not that...it is kinda looks, but maybe performance too in blocking heat. Maybe the lounge?? I do not even know if this is legal on here either. So if it isnt, please dont infract me, just TELL me, and take it down lol please.

The person who was gonna make one for me can no longer do so. So, I am looking to see if there is anyone else on here that can do this for me? I want something like this:


I will pay you a reasonable amount. This one above is fiberglass, so it is cheap. The lettering I can have TFB do.

Now, if noone can do this on here, I am looking at these options:


and



but they are both ridiculous for what they are...about 650 bucks each. so, i am hoping i can find someone who can mess with fiberglass.

again, i have no idea if i can ask this on the forum. if not, trash it and let me know. thanks.

Man you're asking for too much....IMO. First the guy who did this would have to own a Focus that had your engine, to do the fitting. Then he'd need the proper tools and the expertize. Then he'd need the time to do the job without minding that he was working for probably less than minimum wage.

To top it off.....when finished, his final product might not please you, might not fit your car, and might fracture/break in use. Plus it would be likely that nobody else would want another one. (the second product would be easier to build).

I could have done this for myself...that photo does look good. But I settled for the Mazda cover I used, because I knew it would probably fit, and wouldn't take a bunch of time.

But good luck....

well, that was why i asked the original maker of that cover above to make it for me. I am asking people who may know already HOW to do this. Some guys on here are pretty handy with resin, fiberglass, bondo, and so on. Should only take a couple hours and if i give them 75 plus shipping, thats higher than min. wage.

That looks like you can possibly make that out of a sheet of aluminum and use a brake/roller to form it. Something I can possibly do but I don't have access to a brake since I'm not working right now.
