Motor Cooling blower3069 viewsThis is the ductwork box I had to build so I can run a hose to each motor.
The box is built out of 3/16" ABS. The blue plate is a metal mounting plate so I can bolt the assembly to the frame.

Version 1 Genset Rack3947 viewsThis one was nice in that the Sparrow "rear panel" would just slide into the tubes. Just had to extend the wiring to reach.
The problem was that with all the weight of me and Genset, it would bottom out when going over big bumps.
