    Might be a bit extreme but if you are unable to get one shallower off the shelf then maybe get one machined from a piece of billet ally, it shouldn't be that difficult given that you have a pattern to work from. There is a guy over Throcking that does some really nice stuff and not a million miles away from you.

    Will look forward to seeing this progress - considered using these on the front end?
    or too heavy a vehicle/limiting on brake options/axle issues/tyre etc?

    OK found Moroso do a 2" deep alloy pan.....more expense!
    On the bright side I have removed all the offending grass so can now get the car out



    Now just got to sort the trunk out.
    The bear claw latch allowed almost 1/2" of up and down movement when driving, noisy.
    Tried to pack the loop as can't move the actual latch.
    Spectacular fail, now got the trunk locked and can open it.
    Had to remove the hinge pins and work backwards.
    Have now completely removed the latch assembly and will fit a couple of lockable "bonnet pins".
    These will also hold the trunk lid in alignment with the body work.
    One day I'll get to drive it again

    Still waiting for the oil pan to arrive.
    Decided to change the look of the rod a bit.
    Before.




    After.




    Just a bit of body work to loose behind the rear stack.

    Also K&N don't supply the 10" stud to hold it all on.
    So have had to order that as well!!!!

    I prefer the K&N's but there again I might be biased I was going to comment on your wanted ad about how tall a 5" filter makes a stack but you know now.

    Really?????. Not my business but that's drastic. I would flatten (or mod) the stack before messing with a good body that's painted etc.

    JMHO.

    It's not to bad.
    As its a glass body there is an indentation already where I need to remove the scuttle.
    It's only about 3mm thick in a crescent shape, a Dremmel will sort it in a couple of minutes

    I've always felt the shotgun scoop wasn't quite right for the car.
    The 2" K&Ns I had by themselves weren't quite enough.
    Then I saw this set up on a US forum and thought it would be just right.
    I'm very happy with the look now.
    Also allows the motor to breath better
