it was inspired by yours and an article i read bout 6 years ago,
there will be tasteful mesh soon to come.
off topic there is also room enough for a radiator overflow behind the front bar
put the filler countersunk left of the bonnet puller ,so that might be on the cards to replace the poo brown 1 that was blocked for who knows how long
yes i know there are pwr ones but have you seen how much they cost f/n heaps

i did get the flex hose and pipe from a vn for $5 bucks off ebay
funny thing was i had a very done up vp that i sold for 220 bucks the week before so i could get billets for my rims :lol:
vps are the best commonwhore, but even then they are just good for doey's drift and scrap.
it was like do i want a fully sik vp unreg fukd fuel pump or the part i need to put 18's on the el the choice was easy getting rid of a fully sik vp not so...

I cant get my BA snorkel to fin on my EF. I know i have to make new holes for it to screw in bit i have the BA air-box and it just wont go on.
I think the snorkel hole is to close to the thermos now that its the BA box not the EF one...
Any ideas guys?
I bet its a stupid question but i cant get it to fit.
