Gordon supplied the paper engine template trim to many here. My CMC came with precut body-color (gelcoat) pieces of fiberglass for sides of the engine compartment and 2 pieces for rear above the muffler. Shown here in build manual.
JB356SR - mentioned hole in the firewall for air intake. His is a VS with a round hole with hardware cloth over it. CMC has a 1/2 moon section to be cut out - and the rest of the front has a piece of black rubber hall mat applied. Is that the piece f vinyl mentioned by JB?
I’m thinking of covering the hole in the engine compartment. I’m thinking it will help keep the dirt out. Will this affect my engine cooling?
