    DIY cp-e style airbox

    I've had alot of free time at work lately so I decided to mess around with the sheer, the brake and some powder coat. I grabbed some scrap pieces of 060 aluminum, cut them down to size with the sheer, then I bent them on the brake. I taped the pieces together to see the shape of the box and to test fit into the car. I had planned on having my boss weld the box together for me since I am a novice welder, but I really wanted to do the entire project by myself so I decided to make some brackets and rivet the box together instead. Once I test fit everything together with the brackets, I match drilled them, then powder coated everything satin black. The last step of the box was to rivet everything together. Then I decided make a top for the box, I found some aluminum mesh and some threaded angled pieces I could rivet to the inside top corners of the box so I could secure the mesh top with screws.

    Looks good, a few touches of refinement, and you'd have a product you could sell. If you wanted to. Or maybe churn something up for me, on the side. For that cash money. I'm always psyched to see craftsmen produce sweet goods. I also am not shy to pay for them, lol
