think 1/8 inch aluminum welded all together would work ? i know it would be alot of pieces ? here is another... trying to go with the cheapest most effective way..

A good aerodynamic design is important to getting good flow through a part. If you have corners and square boxes and other turbulent stuff in there, it's not going to flow as well as a part with smooth transitions and surfaces. Of course that's not as easy to fabricate either, but if I was making a top from scratch I'd go for curved surfaces. Something like this:

This is what I did, I wanted to make one for my Cougar and eliminate the 3.8.

i agress, i guess i totally overlooked that.. i was looking for a really simple way of making one, i wonder if 1/8 inch aluminum would be easily to do that or not ?
