Looks like a horrible manifold between the carb and blower

There was a company making decklids back in the late 80s-early 90s...try flipping through some old VW Trends magazines for the ad.

The company I remember in the 80's/90's was only a big lexan window with a rubber seal. More recently, I have seen all clear hoods on tuner cars.

Back when I was in a Community College art department on the G.I. Bill, I built a vacu-forming machine. It was about two by two feet. We would heat up 'plexiglass or a white poly sheet locked into the upper part. At the right time, lower it over the 'mold' then kick on the vacuum pump. Among other things, I did headlight frames for a friend's '59 El Camino and a few other goodies. There were a few tricks to it, but we did some pretty neat stuff. I'm guessing the a plastic's shop has something like this available.
