      Brettborders Air Box Mod (Expanded Version)

      Thanks Brett for a great idea! I decided to use the entire air box lid. Took all of 45 minutes or so with dremel tool. Hope you like it.

      That looks great! How did you install and seal it? Silicone? Is it plexi or lexan? More pics if you've got em!

      I appreciate the work you did, and not to sound like an ass, but what was the point of that?

      Just wanted to spice up the otherwise boring engine bay, what with all the black plastic and such.

      Above poster, I used Lexan and sealed from below with 100% clear silicone.

      you can easily check to see when you need to clean your filter without messing with those annoying hex screws. and yes it looks pretty cool...

      Well done...it does look nice and it does serve a purpose...
      would be cool to blow some haze into it and watch the filter make it disappear, like watching a windtunnel vacuum at work...

      I was also thinking about doing this and maybe painting some stuff under the hood.

      Nice, clean and most of all awesome looking. Great job.

      To your point, you boast about an aluminium shift knob, 100000000k high beams and I dunno what for low beams. What's the point of that?


      It's all about the looks, I really like that lexan airbox mod. I'll be doing it myself very soon!
