You might want to cut down the center section or put an opening in the front to get some cooling air to your motor.

Dope is a kind of paint. A really easy way to seal it is to use a 30-minute epoxy. Put in on then wipe off the excess with a (Yes!) paper towel. It will leave a neater and lighter finish. I've tried this trick after seeing it on another site and it does work well! If you can get the epoxy pigment, you can add that to it and save the hassle of painting it. It is available in a variety of colors.
Where can I get some of this you'll ask, right? OK, try here:
