Looking very nice indeed.What engine do you have ? Is it the 2.2.Have you decided on a colour?
I would be tempted to enclose the rad in a housing and make a scoop to run the air up to the fan and exit the rear.Perhaps have a cut out fot the number plate section to let some heat out.Just a thought.Since ive done my cowling its been fantastic.Also have ally radiator and good fans too.A digital temp guage i find a godsend.Better be safe than sorry you dont want to cook a scooby lump :smt012
Cant wait to see it on the road,keep up the great work.

hi its got the 1.8 engine in at the moment might go up to the 2.2 if its a bit slow as for the colour its going to be dark met grey as for cooling the vents on the sills feed cold air into engine also ive got a fan for the engine lid .might have to do something if she runs hot all the time

I've edited your post as all the pictures were on one line :smt018

What can I say m8, what a cracking job your making of that Covin. Looking mighty fine indeed. Well done, it's going to be stunning in Dark met Grey as well. Great choice of colour and look forward to seeing it all painted :smt012

Very nice sjr964, love the clean engine and bay. What are your plans for the rear lights and the open area inbetween the two?
