Wait a minute Hal, I see you have the super-dooper shelter sides with the explosion-damping vents. It shouldn't actually blow-up anymore.
(I considered those but they make the engine sound strained.)
Mine are the special sound damped version. They will have a foam-strip seal on the inside, and will close tight to GRP shaped three sided 'funnels' which connect to the modified airbox with 50mm flexi tubes. I've modded the airbox, and made the funnels, but not yet made the fixing brackets.
There shouldn't be any extra engine noise.
Great news! I rang Héchard today and they say no prob, bring the rig in, they can fit the windscreen anb door window and show me the trick of how to fit the nose 'window' so I can do it when I'm ready. I still need to fit the internal panels and valve, plus the oil cooler rad and pipes.
