You could probably make one out of sheet metal or something. What kind of heatercore does it need to cover?

You're probably not going to be able to find a commercial shroud to fit that. Cardboard and sheet metal would both work though...just takes a couple cuts and some folding. Not too much work.

You can do one made out pantyhose and fiberglass in any shape you want. Carbon fiber would be cool but expensive.

I made one for a DTek pro core, but I rushed, it looked like crap and I didn't want take the time to sand and all stuff for a little shroud. When I build my sub enclosure for my car, I'll spend a lot more time finishing. Here's a link to get you started, if you want to go that route:

You gotta buy fiberglass resin, $10 at Home Depot, I think. If you have a disposable bucket and paintbrush, that'd help too. OH, don't forget to clean the bucket and brush right away with thinner/acetone, or you'll be sorry. =)

Yeah, I know - It sounds weird. The panyhose serves as a mold for the fiberglass.

you can easily make one out of sheet metal got from Home Depot if you just take a few measurements based on high school geometry... and it'll cost you less than 20 bucks.

Nice work VballCoach. Impressive! If I quit being lazy, I might just do one for a caprice heater core I want to use.
