hey everyone,

in the very near future (next month lol) I'm wanting to mold and build my own intake garnishes but at a fraction of the cost of the real thing. Granted the real thing would be better but money doesn't stretch that far, just like crowmar with his CK Fin he's building.

before I start, I want to do a little research, and I was hoping there was people with pictures and dimensions of the real thing so I can get as close to the real thing as possible.

pictures of the back/sides would be really helpfully as I can't find any anywhere and dimensions.

never know, after I'm done, if people are interested at my handy work, My plan is to hopefully make more for anyone interested and sell as a complete kit, ready to fit.

I'll keep you updated once I start the process !!

Welcome to the fibreglass fun.

do you have experience with this material?
yea iv used it quite abit but no harm in any tips if you got them ;) has been a while.

got expirence in carbon fibre aswell but just don't have the specialist heat and suction tools etc and materials harder to get hold of.

you should get a spare wing and maybe invest some time I to building some more, bet there would be alot of people interested aswell, me included lol.

Hey mate just be carful how you word it, dont say your doing a mugen or any other brand of copy, some people on here are very sensitive to the "copy"

I wouldn't mind a look at it when you have developed your own cold air intake ;)

Good luck buddy !

yea like terry said, I'll just say that there cold air intakes to supply air to the air box rather than a set brand ;)

for copyright reasons and for explaining it ;) haha

thanks for that link guys. appreciate it.

I'm getting there, Iv made my reverse mould so waiting till payday and buying the fibreglass bits and pieces and will be getting on my way, sadly that's only the LH side with the hole for the intake pipe. it will get done in the next couple of weeks and have a solid mould for more makes.

pictures will be on next week as I'm visiting family this week.
