Masonite was attached to the top of the timber frame with an opening cut to provide clearance for the engine which sits a bit higher that the nosecone.  MDF was used for the sides as it was more flexible than masonite and better conformed to the angled shape of the sides.  Strips of timber were added to form the radius between side and top and the finished shape achieved using body filler.
