Beautiful! Jonathan and his team do incredible work.

Question about your cowling. It looks like a Showplanes cowling, but with an induction air inlet added to it and the stock dual induction air inlets deleted. Is that what you did and how well does it cool? I've contemplated doing that with mine as I'd like more cooling air and a direct inlet into the throttle body (SDS).

If yes, can you email me some more details/pictures as to how you made that work? Thank you.
