The top of the cover resting on top of the engine is about an inch below level with the bottom of the window opening, I plan to mount mine to a piece of sheet metal and have about an 1 1/2 clearance between the bottom and the actual engine. It should clear the deck lid no problem.

Im getting ready to make a mount for my 3800 upper engine mounts.  Do you have a picture of what your looks like that you would be willing to post?  thks!!

Received some OEM door cards a couple weeks ago. Also purchased the door locks shortly after. This should really help align the doors when I get back after it! Anyone have a set of the square door lights they would be willing to sell???

Finally found some time! Looks like an engine cover.

looks great!  does the engine cover block the view out of the rear window?  I have a 3800 as well and was wondering what the clearance was with the lid and window?  Thanks!

While waiting on a few last engine parts to arrive today. I went ahead and cut apart my roof to accommodate the brake light Panel Auto made! Thanks to USMC Butler for making the mold of the lip from his car!!!  ;)
Looks good!

You are most welcome sir!  Hope you and your family have a Merry Christmas  :santa

It's a great modification you are doing to the roof, in my opinion it just makes it look much more OEM.  So did you get your engine running?

Hopefully done fighting with this! I've had the engine torn down a handful of times now all because I forgot the oil galley plugs!  >:( Finally had it running good for a bit then realized I had blown a head gasket in the process so had to tear it apart one last time! I've been overly cautious this time to make sure everything was perfect! Absolutely embarrassing but should have it 100% running great in the morning!
