This wasn't quite what I was trying to do (I tried to cast a shroud to cover
the light buckets, etc. behind the plastic aero lens ala BMW's new 3 series)
but my first two attempts weren't successful.  I've since decided that black
wrinkle-finish paint over the aluminum is good enough for the time being and
hope to finish this project in the next few weeks since it looks like my car
is going to be at the rollcage store for another week or two ... arrgghhh!!!
