Looks good!
I have been using metal flashing to make mine. Its very thin and easy to cut and bend. Shows dents and damage from crashing and rocks rash too.

Out of curiosity, how did you go about mounting up those tires and wheels? I have some 2.2 sx's and they weren't agreeing with my racline wheels.....

Used a 2.2 wheel from the wraith on the bottom as a stand, seated the back bead in the beadlock and inner ring, then got the front bead in place used the outer ring to push down on the outside. Then started screws in a + shape to get it uniform then worked from top bolt around clockwise to tighten completely. Took a while but seems to hold pretty well so far, we will see how it likes the tekin roc412 on 3s lol

Thanks . This aluminum is from flashing for solar panel installation lol. I used this aluminum because it's nice and soft should show good damage also.

Did you try making a hood yet? I tried a few times and each time I wasn't satisfied with the outcome , or I had a real good one going and then fudged it all up.

Here's the last hood I made. This one didn't come out so bad. Still something about it that's not right though.
