That'll work, but watch your temps. Yours is even more enclosed than mine, and on long hill climbs my temps rise to the middle and high 190s. In such situations, I will run the heater sometimes to prevent the temp crossing 200. But I think I miht need a new radiator fan or thermostat or something too. Did you duct what air come in the remaining opening into the radiator?
See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
