In the engine bay there are plates on the sides, which are probably used as soundproofing.

I found these plates on the car and would like your opinion on their appearance.

Are these plates original or the original ones are simple ?

Hi Chris

I don't think these plates are original.
The original ones must resemble the one on the sedans, as in the attached photo. It is 1mm thick smooth aluminum. The edges are folded to leave a thickness between the sheet of the wing and the plate in which is housed glass wool.

We are still working hard on the car, but it's not really visible, so my delay in this post.

The left part of the car is near to ready.

The design of the car looks simple. It's when we work on the car that we realize there are a lot of sheet metal details. Curves, counter-curves, edges, rounded, convex faces in both directions and so on... Interesting work.
