I like the shroud that came out very cool, the ramped corners will add alot of strength
Nice work

Is there a custom inlet manifold hiding under there? More of your work?

Definitely thought about it. Still havent got my head round how to makes it work. Thinking if I was to keep the lexan lid I'd have to make the box 2 piece to clamp the panel filter. .... or maybe clamp the panel filter with the lid :idea:

either way.
two piece like factory setup with clamp half way down the 'box'. window on top.
or make the lid as an insert to clamp the filter and fasten it at the top.

Then got back onto the Prado. It needed a brace between the coilover struts. So in true redneck fashion I got carried away :mrgreen: There simply wasn't enough room under the bonnet so.............................. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: I'll post pics of the bonnet tomorrow night when I've finished hacking :wink:
