That should take care of it!!! I'm really impressed that you're able to run your shifter cables through the shifter tunnel. I have to run mine outside due to the position. Your coolant lines run under the motor and up the back?

I'm sure you'll sort a way of getting cool air to the rad without cutting the bonnet like that, I guess it's OK to debug it...

So, when's the first drive?
