Hi to All, Re engine bay temperatures I’ve just carried out some test and can revel the follow:- ambient temp. On day of test 28oC
eng. bay temp. before start up 27oC
after five miles eng. Bay temp 55oC
stopped in traffic eng bay temp 59oC
eng. off five minutes 73oC
Bear in mind the following temperatures could not all be taken at the same time.
Fuse box 55oC
Valve block 37oC
Eas comp. 44oC
Top of rad. 55oC
Header tank 64oC
Abs pump 52oC
I’m toying with the idea at the moment of installing four outlets on either side of the bonnet ( hood ) it will certainly help to keep the fuse box and valve block a bit cooler,
but can I bring myself to cut into the old girl, I’ve ordered some embellishing rings and it depends on how they look before I start cutting. I’ll keep you up top date.
Best regards sillyboy

The Classic had slots cut into this sort of area on quite a few Kenyan Range Rover's. Just check that the air can get to that point.

I wouldn't worry too much about it. The engine coolant will always try to operate at 96 degrees and you can't change that very easily.

Remove the cowl gasket at the rear of the bonnet.

I also pulled that gasket above the fire wall under the window. Seems to work cause now I smell all the oil burning
