I was figuring I'd complain to you directly when it fails and/or cracksJust don’t complain later when it fails/ cracks.
It’s the fat design of the tip that’s the issue, not the height of the covers.
I think it's noteworthy that the height of the covers isn't really even a factor, parallel to the flange surface. Plenty of room there in fact my clay hats didn't even smash against the "top", just against the inboard wall. The only place contact was made was at those corners so I'm not even convinced a spacer would have made a difference except to hit the alternator with the flange.
Anyway here it is for posterity if I come back saying I messed up then I guess people will know not to be like me. And that guy on facebook and his buddy.
Otherwise I'm just gonna enjoy this car since it's officially put-it-back-together time instead of take-it-apart time
