That's not a bracket...that is a cover for the A/C intake (return). Taking off that cover is one of the well known mods to improve the HVAC in the Lotus. There is a cover on the driver's side too...you take them both off.

BTW, where in Ohio are you?

Today we do the gPan...motul oil... Tranny fluid flush, with motul ... Castrol SRF brake fluid
flush

And maybe soft top install if we have time

Too bad no driving till Monday as the oil pan swap requires 24-48 hrs for the liquid gasket to seal

recommend using Toyota FIPG for the gpan to seal it up.
Do a leak test before installing the pan using water. I had a pan that leaked due to a bad weld.
Also make sure that the oil drain plug won't leak and that the inside welds don't interfere with the plug seating.

Hope that helps!

For a cleaner look you may consider relocating the rule injector wires and harness loom beneath the VF intake manifold.

Not being an ass but the wrap on your exhaust needs some help. Don't waste your time with that DEI junk or the stainless bands. Get a good brand like Morosso and use safety wire to secure it.

Very cool, I think ACSlater is your Red Doppelganger.
You rang :cool:?

Love the Stormtrooper look - when I started shopping for mine I looked everywhere for a white one, but I do love my Darth Maul car! Have you been out to the track yet? Post some video when you get out there!

Very nice car and a good selection of mods! Looks like you are doing nice work on it.

What lift is that you have it on in post #3 ? I have read some about lifts on this site and it seems like most people think that kind will damage the bottom of the car. What was your experience with it?
