thanks guys I feel better about it now, it was worth the extra work. the windshield area seems to be the correct size now and the hood height is much better.

yes will have skid plate from belly to x member. wanted to have enough room to remove oil pan and leave room for different motor options. its pretty common to have them that far down on these style of buggies makes easy to put skid plate under oil pan.
