It’s actually more of a fancy cover for a big hole in the hood of the Exocet. The VVT pump on the 2001 Miata motor pokes through the hood, necessitating an ugly hole. I decided to 3d print a cover with the car’s mascot (Bonsoir the Unisaurus). I also painted up some mesh and expoxy’d it in.
I made a rubber gasket so it doesn’t sit straight on the bodywork.
Print came out pretty cool.
Goodbye ugly hole!
