I have one of these, which is magnetic and sticks like crazy to the 
bodywork.  Unfortunately, the cowl grill itself (AHH6102 stamped right 
on it, just like the listing in the Seven catalog) is nonferrous!  That's 
right, the silly thing won't stick.

You can modify the cover easily with a pair of small scissors or diagonal 
cutters, to sit on the body work itself under the cowl grill.  You have 
to cut notches for the grill pegs to go through

It works quite well there.  Now if I can get the $#&@ defrogger to work 
on the >driver's< side rather than just the >passenger< side...  The car 
is cool but not drafty at highway speeds with this cover in place.

I imagine the original part is steel but not the replacements.
