Plans: 1. Fab the cover for the engine compartment. Status: Started. The top cover for the engine compartment is being constructed. The first step is to create a template in masking tape. Since the finished shape is curved straight cuts in the flat aluminum sheet stock are not possible. Building the part with strips of masking tape allows the curved shape to be removed and laid flat for the template. Since the tape is still fairly irregular I will transfer the shape to cardboard stock next. I will use the cardboard to get the shape as close as possible before moving on to the aluminum sheet. 2. Fab a heat shield for the engine mount bushing. Status: Complete. With the muffler being relatively close to the rubber engine mount I decided to protect it with a heat shield. The shield was constructed from 20 gauge stainless steel sheeting.
