Oh dear despite the car not working at the minute I couldn’t resist a cheeky buy it now off eBay tonight......

A nice carbon fibre orranje G Wing, well it’s got to look nice parked on the drive hasn’t it!

Experimenting with an airbox this afternoon

first up the bits, a Wickes drainpipe adapter, airbox lid and k&n filter

chopped the adapter back a bit so the filter sits over the widest part

this is where I’m experimenting, I’ve got some 2 part epoxy resin that I’ve secured the pipe in place with

Then as the first bit began to set I poured more resin in to form a ‘lake’ around the pipe, as long as it cures and hardens then it should hold the inlet pipe in place, if not it’s back to square one!

going to leave it for a few hours now then go back and see how it’s getting on, I’m away with work until Thursday night now so it will have plenty of time to harden And is useable, if it does work then I’ve ordered some extra bits to make the airbox look fancy!
