Snorkel!

Recommended Posts

so ended up getting a snorkel that was off of a second gen toyota truck cause the contour look about the same as the R50 body and heres how it came out, it leans in a little bit but does not effect visabilty.1400193_10200931094425263_1568640945_o.j

I have never tried it, but you might be able to apply a little heat to adjust the contour a little. Maybe you can get a slightly better fit?

Looks great, but I'm with RP88, try heating it up a bit to improve the fit. Still awesome as is.

I like it. Clean looking.

 

Hey, if you decide to reshape and don't have a heat gun, I bought a Hazard Fraught (Harbor Freight) heat gun for $12 dollars a few months ago. I keep finding things to reshape/shrink wrap. Might be worth a try.

I had a similar problem with an XJ Cherokee snorkel that I adapted, I just cut the snork & added some flexi pipe in between the 2 pieces so that I could bend it to the angles I needed. :itsallgood:

Along with theexbrit I didn't like the angles with the cherokee model, so I cut it and reshaped it to match the A-pillar, much happier

Didn't know you'd finished your Cherokee snork SP, any pics?

Looks good.

 

I'd be concerned with visibility...looks like an easy reason for an officer to pull you over. :ph33r:

 

Love the color of your Pathy, by the way!

idk ill try it but I think since is poured in to a die to be made I don't think it will bend like PVC or ABS

I honestly don't see it at all, but at night when I go under a street light I am reminded that its there by its freaky shadow that looks like its going to hit me while Im driving lol

:rofl: as long as when the shadow moves across the dash you don't yell "The fist of fury!"

 

Otherwise I like, I just know the 'form with function' part of me would go nuts with the offness of the angle. Close enough to work and not look bad but far enough I would mumble to myself every time I got in :lol:
