      I really don't understand why everyone is shaving their engine bays..it looks stupid if you ask me, and getting to essentials like the window washer fluid and coolant/antifreeze is over-the-top impractical.

      But, I will admit that you are putting in some mad work to this car, and I respect that


      Good luck with the build

      The coolant is the easy part just place an inline full spot make a nifty overflow tank of your choice and wala coolant system done. As for the windshield easer fluid mine was always empty so I never used it, so I just ripped it out and called it a day. Since all that stuff is gone might as well get rid of the a/c (that didn't work) and know it looks like Swiss cheese and has bracket that serve no purpose so to get rid of those you start to shave. These are just my reasons why I want to shave the bay.

      Just a question...
      I have been trying to do this for years now, and I have no clue as to where to get the parts from?
      Can you possibly tell me where you're getting your parts from?
      I really really want to do this to my 337.
      Thanks!

      Well I can't drop names. But I can tell you the dash is in, the rhd firewall has been welded in and the steering rack and everything is in place. He is waiting on the rest of his bodywork to be done and then paint. Trust me when it's a car you won't miss.

      Ok I would like to pick their brain alittle just to see what they did or how they did things. Also why did
      They weld in the rhd fire wall it does bolt in. My guess is for shaving bay purpose
