Started on the engine since I'm extremely limited on space in the shop right now.

I had picked up a complete OEM VW doghouse style shroud with all related flaps, thermostat, etc a few years ago.

I tossed the pistons and cylinders and took the engine to STL for a bottom-end rebuild. Top end I can do - bottom end not so much.

That is a ton of work to save a W lid! I've gone back and forth with the standoffs. I can see a ton of air being drawn in that gap though.

Been working on the "W" lid.
