I cut the fiber glass with a saw and strengthened the back of the R/H guard with Carbon Fiber...For the L/H side i made timber wedges and shaped them to suit. The cut out sections were positioned so the hoses, wiring, etc could not be seen.. but also being affective by not restricting the heat to escape from the radiator....i then reinforced the rear of the panel with Carbon Fiber as well.....
