What's Better Than A Shiny Thing?

.... Why a shiny thing I've made myself of course. Yes the airbox is almost complete. Over the Christmas break I found that the airbox itself was too close to the underside of the bonnet, so had to cut 3/4in off of it, then I made a lid by bending a pice of aluminium sheet over a pipe, bent up the edges, fitted anchor nuts, & polished it a little, then cut down the new trumpets to fit & fitted them. To say I'm pleased with the end result would be a masterstroke in understatment. It's not perfect, there are a few small dents from th manufacturing, but they just serve to make it look more workshop-made. But enough of my boasting, see what you think ........
