Next project will be a new cooling shroud for the Type4 engine. A DTM would be nice, but would be ridiculously expensive due to shipping and taxes before it is here. And I like to make things...

To evaluate my design, I will place ring-type thermocouples underneath the spark plugs. I made this housing for the gauges. It will not be part of the dash, but it is a plug-it-in-when-you-need-it thing.

Started on the new cooling shroud (Type 4 engine). Made a 3D model and printed it in many sections. It took a looooong time. Next step will be bonding all parts together, cover the whole thing in a thin layer of woven cloth, and then filler, sand, filler, sand, filler, sand (repeat until fingers are worn), cover in 2K paint, ensure it is really glossy, take multi-piece moulds, and then finally laminate the real thing….

I can't really tell - their home page says 404 not found but all the inventory pages are up with prices.  They moved from GA to NV a few years ago.  Even in GA they were hard to get a hold of.  Seems like they had parts in both places.  I think some one said they had a facebook page with owners contact info.  Prices seem reasonable today - I thought high a few years ago.  Could be like the closed gas station with 99 cent/gal gas still advertised!
