That's exactly what I did, although I didn't cover it with duct tape. I guess it could be painted black. Although when the cover is in place you can't see it anyway.

Thomas,
Do you already have a 411?
If yes, are there any parts that you need?

What a nightmare. Why on earth would they do that? Peter, please photograph what you eventually find and share it here on the forum.

Hi David,
Sorry about the late reply. My air cleaner is 17" diameter (underside it's a little wider at the top). The hole for the carby is 5".

David,
I've just looked at some of the photos you posted and your air cleaner sits up quite high above the flange on top of the carby, whereas some original style air cleaners start below the flange...

My guess is that the carbys that fit any mopar LA series or B/RB V8 will have the same top diameter (where the air cleaners sits). The Edelbrock on my 411 (B block 400) has a top outer diameter in...

On the 408Mk1(up to chassis 408/7200) the unladen ground clearance was specified as 6.5 inches.

David,
I should explain why I am asking. There is a part which Bristol called a "distance piece" which sits above the front coil spring. I don't know what the original ones were made of, but they...

David,
Is the tilt even at the front and rear of the driver's side of the car? (in other words has the front and rear dropped to the same extent).

It looks okay without the bumper; it also looks very different, like a smaller car.

Just as well if anyone doesn't have a bumper, because they are probably impossible to buy now. Last time I asked...

Hi Oliver,

Peter,
I still use the standard air cleaner. I suspect there isn't much room between the air cleaner and the bonnet, but it does fit.

Although the phenolic resin heat block below the carby is...

Hi Oliver,
I own a 411 S5 but I believe the chassis is the same as the 412s.
If you jack it up under the front crossmember (presumably using a trolley jack) I would put a steel plate between the...
