Haha this is great. See the guy wasn't full of it! I wouldn't mind if they made that area visible and sealed off the rest just leaving the circle pony exposed. Lift hood, bam there is a pony
When I 1st saw the pictures of the Empire State Building Mustang in pieces, I figured even though the hood will have insulation.
I would/will cut out that part and put Velcro around it, so I can remove for showing off and reinstall for driving.
