Can anyone supply me some pictures of what the Aircraft Spruce MC-4 nose cowl looks like? Also what prop spinner fits this nose cowl?

Thanks!

I’m sure Cubes has the appropriate spinner for this application whether you go fixed pitch or constant speed

I have the Aircraft Spruce MC-4 nose bowl with the MC-5 bottom pan. The spinner is a BN-3 from Spruce also. The cowl was slightly larger than spinner trailing edge, so did some work on cowl to make it match spinner. The cooling air inlets were closed up a bit and the bottom pan was modified with the exhaust outlets and ram air intake.
