that looks bitchin. do you plan to leave the rectangular engine hole there or clear around it?
Yeah, engine bay will be stock. I plan on running a Type 3 motor so will have the stock engine cover filling that hole. I will be building some ducting from the vents on the rear cowl to the stock ducts that start in the fenders and snake around to the rear apron before directing air into the back of the engine.

When I get on my computer later, I will sketch something up in PhotoShop to show you what I mean.

Here is a really quick PhotoShop trying to show the duct boxes and airflow to the Type 3 motor.

I also got a little bit more done tonight. Started trying to clean up the rear end some more, including the frame for the decklid.
