ya, good point, but i did make sure it is in the right placement! all is good. ive had the dash in and out of the car like 8 times just making sure everything will work!

also if you nitice in the pics, im putting in a double din stereo. proably gonna go with something touch screen. i know its not a race inspired mod, but i figure i want to do some long drives with this car, so i thought why not have something nice to have navi, mp3, and dvd all in one unit!

Ah, but this is the german-style corner and true german-style cars are great long distance drivers. Think 'Autobahn'

update time again. sorry for the super slow process, but i AM gettin this car done.

well todays update is on the motor. i was searching around on shoptalkforums and saw a fellow guy selling a center mount fan shroud, so i posted on his thread saying i would love to buy it. well that guy said he wasnt ready to sell it just yet. well two hrs later i get a I.M. from a guy over seas saying he makes these fan shrouds and if i would like one, he would ship one out my way. the price i could not turn down..... $156 shipped (yes not joking) so i paypaled him the money. keep in mind the fan shroud shipped ground from Estonia. so 4 weeks later, i had this fan shroud. boy was i like a kid on xmass morning when i saw that on my door step.

when i got it, i knew this style fan shrould was prone to having the #3 cyl run hot, so solved this problem by disceting a stock fan shroud for the needed air deflects. when i mocked it up, i realised the hole where the alternator mounts to the fan housing was too big, so i cut out the stock metal one, riveted it to the new fan housing, and i still have yet to glass it all in. but i feel im off in the right direction.

well on with the pics.

mock up pics...





and the mods to the fan shroud, here you can see the air deflects and the alternator pice from the orginal metal shroud...

The case you have is a PITA for upright conversion, but it can be done. It has CV stamped on it right?
