Here are some pics of a snorkle i made up on the weekend
started with making the hole, i drilled heaps of little hole then filed it to make it nice n round,Then i used pinchweld to finish off the hole
Umm just wondering, why didn't you just use a hole saw? Got to be easer than drilling lots of little holes and then filing it out?

Can i ask why you ran the snorkel all the way to the front then to only use flex to run it all the way back to the firewall?

Exhaust shop will mandrel bend that for you. I know a bloke at a shop so I got it done on my hilux for free. But I also know a bloke that does a bit of TIG welding and it has to be cheaper than what he charges.

Looks great. I did a similar think to my hilux except I used an airteck snorkel head, just had to find one that was 45 degree ish and was setup for passenger side - think it was off a navara. You should also be able to pick up the stainless at any where that does custom exhaust or intercooler installs.
