Thumbs up

That is the main reason to use a MUST II setup...to increase available engine bay area.

Those that make the kits offer a replacement flat panel or you can fabricate one yourself.

johny, shouldn't be a problem to do. Locate the factory spot welds, clean the paint away from the spot welds with 3M clean-n-strip disc on a drill.
Special drill bits are made to cut spot welds, one type is a hole saw type, the other is a drill bit with a special center tip to help center the bit into the spot weld. The spot welds should only be cut throught the top panel. Then use an air hammer or small flat punch and hammer to break the panels apart./
