It wouldn't be a build of mine without making something, starting with a heat shield for the K&N filter
I started off with some CAD (cardboard aided design) to get an idea of what entails.
It covers the back area of the engine bay nicely so thats two birds with one stone. My friend Justin kindly gave me a large stainless tray, perfect for this. Although the side casing of my old PC was going to be my first choice lol
By no means do I consider myself a fabricator, even claim I know what I'm doing, most of the time I just wing it and I'm lucky enough it comes out semi decent. I don't own a welder, let alone a tig and I was on a budget that month so I had to use other means. In this case, it was using rivets. Not too shabby.
The battery tray had a decent amount of room left once the battery was pushed further forward. I cut a hole in the battery tray and fed the ducting underneath and down towards the front. I was originally hoping to use a fog light hole but the ducting wasn't long enough.
