Can you tell who made my nose?

Post by Formfirebird23 » Mon Sep 08, 2014 8:14 pm

Hello all new to the board. Slooooowly gathering parts for a KR replica. I recently purchased a nose from a guy in Memphis and was wondering if anyone out there can tell me who made it. Any help is appreciated. If you need more pics please let me know.

To me, it looks like a replica from Marks Kustom Kits...
Post more pics to be sure...

Not pointy enough for marks Custom Kits.

Looks like an old custom electronics nose or very early Lousiell version.

Seeing as it is missing the slight indents for the head lights, I have to say Louisell.

That of an off recast from a few that have had that nose over the years.

Here is a side shot of my nose. Looking at other noses, what is funny to me is how my nose doesnt angle up as much on the part in front, on the "shelf" in front of the fog lights openings. Does this seem normal if it is an early version of someones casting or do you think someone sanded it down. It was definately cast this way, at least this one.
