Very cool would be interested how you find it. Remember to change the throttle pedal stop bolt so you don't snap the cable. Been there done that.

Long time update. I have moved to Sunny Wolverhampton and had to build a garage for my car at the new house but now the sun is out I thought I would tackle some of the little things I have been thinking of doing.

I wanted to dam the the nosecone to get as much air going through the intercooler and radiator as possible. I thought about piddling around with templates and tape and glue then thought bugger it, expanding foam. I covered the insides with a bin bag and squirted expanding foam around the inside of the nosecone.



Trimmed it round the nosecone openings.



I did that a few times to fill as many voids as I could then removed the bin bag



And covered it with black neoprene.

With the grilles back on its looking pretty good and is helping keep intake and engine temps down.

Cheers
