Does anybody make the Cowl around the instrument panel for the MF 10? I know they make the nose cone but have never seen the cowl.

That cowl is the same on all sizes in that series just like the hood bezel

The early ones were made from aluminum, but were changed to plastic for cost savings

May have to find a good used one

GT reproductions makes the  hood bezel, steering wheel cap and decal for the cap

It was only the 66 MF10 that had aluminum. Apparently it wasn't a cost thing, it was that they were so finicky when they cast them, I guess they had a lot of fitment issues and stuff. So they switch to plastic for better consistency. So goes the story anyway.

 

Nobody makes a repro unfortunately.
