Drop on !! It's going to work! Skim it back as far as you can then make the "drop on shell" fit it, lol, a slightly larger shell will look good. 12inches longer and 6 or 7 inches wider is cool, depends what you have left after you skim.enjoyed vids

+1... I'm not convinced it will even be close to fitting width ways, never mind length ways!!

Hats off to you sir for having a hack anyway :lol

width is not really an issue , angle grinder easily fixes that , whats more of a ball ache is shortening front end ( ie engine sticking forward ) as i cant really take angle grinder to engine , only think i can do is move engine back .. which leads to other issues

Place the drivers seat on top of the engine. Problem solved.
