Enclosing the Engine Compartment
After seeing the accumulation of road debris that collected in the engine compartment over the last nine months, I realized I have to make an effort to seal up the compartment. I purchased a sheet of 1/8” (3 mm) ABS plastic. I used cardboard to make a template, and then used a jig saw to cut the proper shape. A fine tooth blade and a slow blade speed worked best. Higher speed melted the plastic and caused the cut to reseal.
