But thanks for the compliment. I guess they look so good, so, ‘uniformed’. That the assumption was wrap

Looks pretty cool, do you have a finished look of both sides.  Where do you plan to attach them, what part of hood?
Looks like you have extra resin on the bottom right inside edge.  Will the middle be cut out?

All very good questions actually the part has not been buffed or polished or cut or anything. Nothing  done to it no wet sanding, nothing. Just added epoxy that’s it.

The finished part will be trimmed and middle will be cut out. it will be Wet sanded and buffed/polished to a beautiful shine. Thank you.

Ps actually these parts are the lower grill inserts around the fog light areas on the Saturn sky Redline. The initial post headline says  hood inserts which I have those as well but this post refers to the lower portion of the Sky. Thanks again

Maybe Elff isn't tall enough to see the cabon fiber strands that are fussed out on the edge?  :idk:

Did you pull a mold from original parts or how did you form the part?

Looks wrapped in the picture, my bad, at least I know they aren't hood vents.  In fact, the sky never had hood vents.
They had hood accents with zero holes
