anyone in charlotte have a hole saw in the 80-85 mm range.

Had a snorkel bought for me for my birthday that I just found out about when Fed Ex sent me a delivery confirmation.

I've seen the template and I know that is the size it asks for.

Yeah its a strange size. I'm sure the only people that have that size are the ones that have done a snokel install.


Harbor freight is calling my name.
 
I have a 3" and a 3-1/2".

Drilling sheet metal with a hole-saw has always been a hair raising experience for me. As soon as the pilot hole starts to wobble, the fun begins. Now I drill a hole in a scrap piece of wood with the hole-saw and then place that scrap block over the desired hole. This might not work on a curved fender.
 
Not going to use a jig saw on that. I just don't trust myself enough for something that is easy with the hole saw.
 
Al, I have one...actually still sharp too
 
Thanks Shaun...... If I'm ur way at some point in the next week I'll grab it off of you.:cheers:
 
Just arrived via Fed Ex.

Its an ebay one but it was a gift and free to me so i'm excited about it.

To address the issue of the cheaper composite being used i'll take a que fro 98snakeeater and line it.

I had heard the ebay snorkel heads were bigger but this one seems ridiculously large compared to the last 80 snorkel head I had.

Might have to put a warning for small children to keep back or get sucked in. :doh:


Going to get it installed next week after camping unless I can convince Brian to help me put it on in the campsite


I'll start a new thread with install pics next week :cheers:

No need... drill holes, pull off fender...
 
Looks great Al! Lemme know how it holds up, I am very interested in one as well. No interference with the antenna with the fleabay ones correct?

Slight but not enough to warrant me to heat up a bar and roll an indent in.

If it starts to bug me i'll take it back off and put the indent in.
