I already have a solution in mind for the rain.

And honestly, there'* nothing in there that rain would cause a problem with anyway. What the hell does your motor do with road spray and splash?

Wow, bill, that looks awesome, but white doesn't seem like the right color. But it still looks great!

Just make up a way to collect most of the rain and drain it into your water injection tank (through a strainer, of course). I did wonder about the rain though. I don't think that much of the road spray and splash ever gets up that high on the motor. I suppose the vents are back far enough that you're away from the wire harnesses and alternator?

Ever notice how hight up the firewall mud splashes get? Clear up to the master cylinder?

I have an idea for the 'off season' anyway. There'* a couple businesses here that make magnetic door signs that can be any color and be cut to fit as top covers. Or I can make inserts for underneath out of plexi or acrylic. In the winter, I don't need the extra cooling.

There is a GTA in the yard here with a set of the large still in it (smalls are in my garage) which I might be grabbing when I go. They are a pain to get off the car.

I would like measurements Will, so I know how to measure for mine.
Geoff...just bring the car.. we'll give the car and angle grinder to Rob..
