Watch your engine temp!!! It looks from the picture that you've effectively covered all of the cylinder cooling fins. It requires some air flow over those fins to keep cylinder temp down and avoid overheating damage to that part. I'd uncover the front and let air flow over the cylinder and exit over the carb. In aviation we call it 'carb heat' and its designed to keep ice from forming in the carb venturi. That's what you're trying to do, right?
