Fiberglass Engine Shroud

Dear Gents/Ladies ,
I am just in the process of building a fiberglass mold for my 911 Engine shroud . I am no expert but i love to try and do as much as i can myself and i have read / learnt many things from all the people on this fantastic forum .
Does anybody know how or what i need to do to get roughly the same colour shroud as the one below .. i know you can add a pigment to the resin .. but i dont think i have ever seen a honey colour pigment ..... or am i totally wrong .. any adviced would be more then welcome ...

Yes, there are honey color (brown) pigments. The less you use the lighter it is. However allot of resins will give you a pretty decent color just by themselves.

To get an amber looking original finish, do not add any pigment to the resin. That is the color it will cure.....

Cheers

Those look like Jenvey throttles on custom manifolds? What linkage set up are you using?

Cheers
