'68- S3 Air Scoop

I would like to buy, borrow, or obtain 3D mapping of, 

an original air scoop used on the bonnets of 1968- 69 Lotus Seven series 3 with downdraft carburetor.

Not any off the shelf air scoop will do.  The scoops used on sevens need to have a tapered point at rear and unequal length sides to fit the bonnet curvature properly.  Its a very difficult item to find new made by anyone.

Patiently waiting for Redline to knock out more...

Until then I will keep asking around.

After some difficulty getting an email through to Arch (I keep ending up in the spam) the consensus was they could possibly make a bonnet with filter hole, but it would be better to do myself to reduce error.  The bubble used in the last version of "GT" offered is NLA.  I can only assume the 68-69 scoop is long gone as I haven't seen any offered by Cat, not since the initial supply of Lotus spares dried up in early 70s.  I gathered Arch is able to produce a plain bonnet, but thats it.

A for the redundant post, yea, I'm just annoying like that.  I could have bumped the old one if I had looked.
