OK, back to the grind! (literally :0) The GRV-2 needs a set of fenders to help reduce the amount of dirt that will be flung up at the engine’s intake. A constant flow of dirt being “ingested” by the engine will cause damage to the compressor wheel and deposit dirt in the evaporator tubes. To avoid this problem I will need to build a set of fenders to deflect any debris that the wheels will pick up during a run. The most important fender is the one on the front wheel as it is in front of the engine’s intake.
