  7. Yep...it was the very same comment that made me ask my engine builder to check the cover. He had the same comments. The mesh was replaced and all looks good...I haven't started the motor yet so all the pit falls of a Nailhead has me concerned. Thanks for the video...the info here is amazing.
  8. Good theory....I was going to go with the "access hole" idea but it is rather small. Same sort of thing with my Jeep Liberty. The antenna is on the passengers side but on the drivers side is a "Trail Rated " badge circular and exactly the same size shape and location as the hole required to mount the antenna.

  16. When my block was "Boiled" I did not see what was done, but I did see what was left and that was bare cast metal! I was very impressed with what I saw...looked like a new casting.
  17. So do you just try and sand the inside by hand the best you can and then cover the rest? Mine has some of that tar stuff that glued the sound pad in there. Also what are the plans for the sound insulation?
  18. Ahh yes the expected plot change.....nice! ...........btw, nice to see some grass. It's been a while for me.
