Are you talking about the piece that has the triangular areas on the ends (or sides?) with the thin piece that connects them under the radiator? I’ve heard lots of negative comments and posts about that piece, enough that I changed that whole thing into something a bit more practical. I cut the triangular pieces off, trimmed them to fit onto the nose pivots, and mounted my horns on them. Then, underneath the radiator, I reshaped the rear panel of the assembly that directs the air up through the nose vent to fit up against the bottom of the radiator. The other piece I made and mounted in the front of the nose is an air guide to send the air through the radiator by keeping air from going under the radiator or around the sides of it (a piece of bulb-seal goes across the top of the radiator to seal it). After seeing how easy it was to make the piece in the nose, I’m a little surprised that FFR didn’t design it in from the start. I kinda’ suck at posting pics right now but, if you IM your e-mail address to me, I’ll put together a pdf doc of pictures of what I built.
