Insurance Trouble

I was wondering if anyone would have a pic of the engine bay which clearly shows the proper factory space between the header shield and cooling fan.
I was heading home from work last month and came into contact with a piece of plywood on the highway. It took out everything below the headlights, rad, condenser, fan and dented the header. Everything was replaced with Ford parts except the rad and fan which cam from some aftermarket joint. The fact the car is still under my factory 60/100, ford seems to have an issue with this and I am getting a smell and the harness connected to the fan seems to be melting. I have an appointment with my insurance company Tues but can't seem to find many pics. I,ve just spent the last hour or so searching the gallery, 207 pages, 12/page!!!! Thanks

You may want to rethink meeting with your insurance company.

Check out this thread that's been going for about a week now.

Good luck.

Yes, but the wiring harness seems to be resting on it, slowly doing a melt! This is as stock of a SVTF there is, I think. I havn't even gotten rid of the original factory tune. Everthing was awesome before the accident and I just want it back the way it was!!!! But, thanks to all the support!
