i usually don't plan ahead with any of my projects. i actually have no concept designs for this one yet. just a few sketches here and there. and work my way as i go along with the mod.

used a dremel to cut the mesh on the rear exhaust.

side panel mod part II:

i decided to add a few more accents as the original window looked too plain and dull for my taste :D

making guidelines for the cut.

side panel mod part III "side vents"

922%20side%20vent05.jpg

the original plan was to add some mesh for the side intakes. but after doing some sketches, i decided to try out a different idea.

i started with some left over acrylic pieces lying around in the shop.

my original plan was to make a smaller version of this reservoir. but then another crazy idea came to mind. lol!

i decided to crack off the remaining acrylic pieces.

then i used a G1/4 thread to tap an inlet valve.
