Enclosing the Carb for parking in the street

If anyone coud please help me out asap that would be great...
I am in the Uk and have a 2door Mk3 cortina with a 3 litre 'essex' V6.
I have just bought a Wade RO34 supercharger and am trying to figure out what air scoop to buy, but as i am parking in the road, need to somehow enclose the carb to make it tamper proof. I have been looking at the Hilborn style air scoops, but cannot see how to cover the carb.
Anyone know any products out there? Or ideas? I will be using a Holley 600 carburettor...
Thankyou very much,
Woody

At least you got one of the better looking Cortinas
If the carb doese´nt stick out too far you could use a Harwood scoop
Summit Racing will gladly send you one, er you´ll have to pay though

Edit; you´ll be Mr with one of those on a Cortina
Edit II; check out this Mark III website look in the gallery.

I agree I was surprised the first time I stumbled across it, Not something I would consider , but it is one heck of a way to hide a carb. What it did do was make me look just a little closer at the rods sporting blowers/hilborn with a closed hood. With that said I have never seen this product in the field and am not real sure how long it has been around. At his museum I do not remember advertisements or displays promoting it either.
