Are the covers painted steel or smoked plexiglas?

These are first set of test covers. Keeping it simple using metal over the kit inserts.
Have crave for light smoked plastic but there are few unknowns right now.

Driving lights behind smoked plastic would be nice.
I'm enjoying the work on your MINI.

I like it. I am just bummed that there isn't a carbon hood that fits well on our cars. I feel like that would really help. Still looks good though.

Many thx.
Yah, that hood added alot to the bill fitting it & still doesn't latch properly. The holders are pulling away on one side to boot.
Came this close to having them spray the bonnet but in the end having CF really looks killer next to the astro.
The unfinished look of the under side though i've got to figure something out. If anyone has any ideas please throw them in garage thread.
