Default Chrome Hood Panel Insert?

Has anyone out in PT land made a chrome hood panel insert from mirrored Plexiglas and how did you mount it to the hood?

I can tell you about the Stainless Steel underhood panel.

Once you take the underhood fire blanket off, the hood has several raised ridges on it. A silicone glue was put on the raised ridges. Once the SS insert was put up against the ridges a series of small screws were put thru the insert around the edge into the raised ridges for extra holding power. In my case I put small chrome caps on top of the screws to hide them. Look closely at the picture below.

The bottom SS insert is held on strickly by the silicone glue, no screws.

I am looking for one that will only be on at shows. I may go with a painted liner of some type.
