Have a 2387cc with 5.7 rods. How much trimming do you foresee would need to be done to fit it in a 1969 Cal-Look Bug. Is the trimming done under the engine seal so it would be out of sight?

I would use a spot weld cutter and remove the side trays altogether and fit the engine in. Then I would measure to see how much you have to trim the sides and do it along the body side of the trays leaving a 1/2" extra that you can fold under and re-weld to the body. That's sort of the way I did it on my 57 and it came out pretty clean looking
