    Custom Snorkel setups

    Id like to start a thread where people can post pictures of their custom snorkel setups to help out others that are planning to do the same.
    Here are a few pictures of mine and a mates.
    Please feel free to upload any pictures you have of your custom snorkel setup, especially if it is out of the ordinary.

    Here is a detailed DIY thread on making a custom stainless steel 4" snorkel for a TD42. Compiled by our very own AB.... http://www.nissanpatrol.com.au/forum...-steel-snorkel

    Heres mine:
    (note the flexi pipe outside the engine bay was fitted by the previous owner and is long gone...)




    The cylinder filter is off a gutlux (yes it hurts to say it!). The elbow on it was cut off, rotated and braised back on to suit the engine bay.


    I only had to make the hole a little bigger so i just snipped with tin snips and folded over the edge



    Tough as stainless steel brackets from a truck shop



    I used door trim off an old car to go around the hole.
    This is the only way i could figure out how to join the flexi pipe to the rubber elbow



    Nice 3" stainless pipe


    Good quality fittings


    Finished product. Im still not sure how much water gets in the end when its raining, especially when when parked on a bit of a hill, but ive checked plenty of times and ive never found any decent amount of water in the filter...
    Also note that i have spun the hose clamps around so that the nut is pointing down and hidden from view now.

    Heres a mates.
    He got rid of the LPG setup and wanted to use the original airbox and filter. The idea was to run steel over the hot side of the engine so that the heat wouldnt affect the flexi pipe etc. The work was done by the local plumbing shop from his design. To save money he just got them to spot weld instead of seam weld and then just ran some sickaflex around the joins.





    The old square to round conundrum


    Pretty good workmanship
