I have a general question for all you fabricators out there:

I have a cowl that is a bit ugly and worn and I wanted a new one. I am beginning to take more of an interest in fabrication and was considering molding my existing cowl and making a new one Vs. buying one new/direct for $30

In regards to what kind of expectations I should have, what would one expect to spend on materials to mold and fabricate a new cowl? How much time should I expect to spend (considering it may take me several tries before I am satisfied)?


Yes, there is the immediate gratification of just buying the cowl direct and installing it; but I think this could be a nice learning experience for me to learn a few new building techniques.

The plane I have been referring to is a Precision Aerobatics Addiction-X that I affectionately refer to as "Burned Retina" 501 LEDs installed internally+ Solid white covering
