You're absolutely right that it would have made more sense to start small. Jumping in at the deep end and struggling is part of the fun for me.

I don't expect the orders to come pouring in.

Yeah, I'm happy with it. It's an ugly hood, but it's MY ugly hood. It opens and closes, doesn't fly off, and it's light, so that ticks all the important boxes.

After a break to forget how much work this was, I'll try making some other parts.
