Guys, its quite simple conversion and it will reduce air temperature in the rear clam, in my case it also cooling engine oil, gearbox cooler and compressor cooler.

So at first, I had to wrap my mind the photos, but now that I figured out what you did, it makes more sense.

How did you manage to shave the door down so "perfectly" so that it looks like it follows the body line better?

Any issues with window clearence for rolling up and down?

Also, what did you use to rebuild the door side so that it was "Flush" with the previous upper door line?

How much of a drop in air temps did you see and it looks like part of the rear clam is in the way, so did you adjust that as well?

Personal note...I think if my car ever gets totaled, I will do this...but until that time I am going to hold off. Scares me to think about doing that to my car. :eek:

no problem, there is paint shop here with great plastic specialist :)

everything is working, windows, and there is still bar inside doors.

for flash they used viper bonnet pieces.

I decide to do this modification as there's no place for the big radiators.

my oil temp during race track hard driving dropped by 35 C !!!!

Please notice its rover engine base elise, so no radiators in the front.
