I jsut fabricated up a blower box.. I took AvTekks pics and created this.. and i was hoping it would turn out alright... it all bolts up also.. just need to drill holes.. clean it up.. seal it all. and paint it.. then mount it.. But for me not knowing to much about metal turned out good since it don't like me and i don't like metal haha.. so what do u think? pretty close to Dave's.. but a few things different..

probably have to redo it man, that thing needs to be up right against the cowl, and a flat edge of the blower should be parallel with the tire for clearance.

i heard a saying before, something like measure twice cut once... j/k man looks good.

atleast you were not afraid to do something on your own. keep workin on it and it will work.

ill give you a hooker and 150 dollars...... sounds like a deal. lol... nah.. it is actually quite easy to make one.. jsut very time consuming...sp.?... hte piece aroudn the fan is a 4 inch piece or 4.25. wide. and like i made it 36 inch's long so i had enough.. and its 2 flate pieces of metal.. and jsut shape it like the old box but higher... i was suprised since i dont like to mess with metal to much... but it came out nice... i would say give it a try..

looks nice, glad you took the initiative to do it yourself and not beg someone to make on for you!
