    I didn't forget about the little angle piece on the oil separator.
    I don't know if it's perfect yet but looks pretty good I think.

    I would suggest roto-casting for the flux boxes and oil separators. You don't wan them to be solid - way too much weight.
    Also, The angle pieces on the oil separators are not solid. They are bent metal. as such I wouldn't try to cast them as part of the piece. I'll try to send you pics tonight.

    Cheers

    I wonder how the Smooth-On Feather Lite product would work. https://www.smooth-on.com/products/feather-lite/

    If you do a rotocast I understand smoothon's 65d or Onyx Black are a good choice.

    bttf- on the cheap...

    I remember my Mom and her friends baking cookies every Christmas. One woman would just bake prune cookies....while another would do just macaroons... They would get together before Christmas and swap cookies.......so that they would all have a variety of cookie trays for Christmas. We need to get this same concept going for BTTF enthusiasts that don't have 50 grand to spend on a conversion. If we split up the work, and "mass produce " parts, it will make things easier for everyone. For example, the engine covers would be easy for me to make... I could even laser-cut them. Same for vents (If I had dimensions). Would anyone be interested in doing this as a joint project?

    For the moment, I am looking to do exterior only....non-destructive.
