Thanks Bob.

To be more correct with my description, yes the top of the shroud was shredded. I fixed it by cutting some plastic to go over the whole and then using small bolts and nuts to keep the plastic in place. Finally, I put 100MPH tape over the plastic to stop air flow between the shroud and plastic. It looked ugle but no troubles with heating.

The other weekend I wanted to show the car properly by having the bonnet open as the former owner (Steve - the mechanical guy) has done such a great job with the engine bay. I could notice the car was running hotter than normal without the shroud.

Sounds like a shorter spacer is the way to go first. My current spacer is 2 3/4.

Cheers,

John
