nice detail....i would expect nothing less..., i found a place that sells the woven stainless i am going to make some domed screens for my lower headlight buckets for the CAI, i am thinking 1/4" openings so they look like headlights from a distance. I will put a black teflon mesh filter media behind them to dissuade any large bits from flying in. Now i just need to figure out how to stretch my air cleaner to fit the dual quads...., change one thing and you change 10.

Gotta give the guys/gals at BILLET SPECIALTIES credit. I have purchased from them and talked to Dominic on the "Tech" line. They sell an excellent product and know thier "stuff".
