It will be interesting to see how it works out.

Lol! I'm always interested in how this stuff works out. For those that fabricate, sometimes the ideas are good, but the application doesn't work out. I started with the dog house design because that was the type of filter I already have on the Burb. About the only place I could fit that, was back under the hood where the air tends to be warm. So, I got a filter that would fit the wife's Yukon. I figured flatter would work a little better. There is plenty of space under that fender, but it can be a bit of a harsh environment. And, there still needs to be some decent serviceability. Once I build the box, I'll need to figure out how to latch the two sealing parts of it, then figure out how to securely mount it under there. I have the fender brace and the inner to outer fender areas. We'll see if I need to get to the outer lip for attachment needs. Plus I can run a brace off of the inner fender. I don't want it looking too obvious from standing outside of the vehicle. But I need to fit the box, and two lengths of 3" tubing. I want to pick up air from the inner fender just behind the grill. Maybe benefit from a touch of positive air pressure as my speed increases.

You never know until you try.

Work continues. Time to trim the upper box around the air tube. Then figure out how to attach the halo. Then place and attach the other air tube.

If you're smart enough to take it apart, you darn well better be smart enough to put it back together.

My mini Thor hammer with loose handle. That and the odd chunk of 1/2" aluminum is how i smoothed the rolled over edges! In fact, I used the special technique of removing the handle and tapping stuff with the head only. Why walk 60' across the shop, unzip the cover, unlock the drawers of my tool box when I can use something close by! LOL!
