Now the cooling, I got one of them rovotec electric fans as fitted one before and they fit really well, or they used to, I tried fitting my and it was out, but contacted revotec about it and they're knocking new brackets up for me, they we're very helpfull, unlike some mini places you contact and they just give you the usual speal, we've sold hundreds of them with out any issues we even have them fitted to our mini's no problems!
This is the combined gap, pushed fully up against other side.
The issue looks like new supply of fans which take a different fitment to the bracket, and as using the bracket which was used on old design of fans, it pushes them out a little, looks like oversight when going with new supply.
As I'm doing all this work want to protect inside the arches, so I'm going for arch linners but if fitting to radiator side would restrict air flow, so this is where a bit of creativity comes in and fibreglass. Excuse my fibreglassing skills if any expert fibreglass people looking, but it does the job. Cut the arch linner and create a air flow area guard well the photo's show it better than I can explain it.
Smoothed of on the inside with bit of filler, will be finishing it with a lick of paint.
Glad you won't be able to see the inside as it doesn't look that pleasing.
