A frustrating mistake

Shawn Piper


So I found a good deal on a TI air cleaner, which inspired me to go dual DCOE with my engine build.  My goal is to attach it to the shock tower with a custom Alpina-style bracket.

But in my excitement I didn't test fit anything and took the air cleaner directly to the body shop to have it repainted...

Of course it came back looking beautiful, but when I attached the clips, they didn't line up correctly.  So the air cleaner now has to be modified and repainted so that the clips line up right.  I'm guessing that one end is from a different type of air cleaner.

This whole car has been a long waiting game so its challenging to not get ahead of myself sometimes.
