More Baffles and Snorkel

Continuing on the baffles I have pretty much wrapped up the Snorkel (induction) at this point.   Just some future paint and connecting the cable to the push/pull lever in the cockpit.  This was a lot of work, but progressing slowly each night has worked great.  Also including a pic of the clips and stiffeners that have been riveted to the rear baffles.  

And the baffle behind cylinder 3 has a support that was too long.   Below is a picture trying to show the issue.  I think it is because the Superior cylinders do not taper so are fairly thick at the base.  So I fabbed up a second support and riveted it in place.  Holds perfectly.  Also, I picked up some small ¾ inch blast tube stand offs from the forums..  Basically this one is in place in front of Cylinder 1 and will blast air on the regulator component of the alternator.
