Have one for me, I'm stuck at work till Midnight :(


Are you sure you want a full one?? Home made and 40+%.

To get this back on subject, I have never seen this snorkle thing before my first Ford since the XY. Also might explain the stain below the battery.

ps. I was going to call it quits but I on your 2nd EDSteve. 8-)

Hi ppl, these days there is a big concern with the escaping hydrogen gas from the battery igniting.

EA's do not have the battery shroud, and guess what? they had problems with their batteries going BANG! (if i little AA makes a big bang, id hate to see a car battery let go) my ED still has its full battery shroud (its snorkel is different kinda like the airbox snorkel, but my mums EF is missing its airbox, the intake was still there so when i was fixing her "driving" ( i had the fron bar and front gaurds off and was grinding and welding away) i ripped it off and threw it across the garage (it was in my way of putting the bar back on).
