Zinc plated steel plate designed to sit perfectly in-between the ribs of a plastic or metal engine lid and to be riveted into place providing a neat, tidy safe, quiet solution to whats normally a nasty looking "bodge" of a job to give clearance for protrusions resulting from engine conversions such as LDA on AAZ conversions or alternators on TDI conversions.
Clearance for throttle levers on Diesel engine conversions.
Clearance for large alternators on TDI conversions.
We've also heard about them being used on T3 Syncro models for access to the top of the fuel tank breather valves although the profile isn't exactly the same it's close enough with a small adjustment to the panel.
Don't worry Westy owners, when fitted, the plate 1mm so you can be safe in the knowledge that your nights sleep won't be disturbed by a lump in your bed!
We tend to use a bit of sealer between the plate and the engine lid to stop smells from the engine bay working their way into the van, then we stick a self adhesive sound deadening pad on the top.
Panel is supplied bare, please see related items for suitable rivets but could be screwed or be used with riv nuts if you'd like service access.
Holes are 5mm to suit a 4.8mm rivet.
