    I used my hands to bend the small bends on the end caps. for the main width I used a piece of scrap 2x4 to help fold it all at the same time.

    i looked at lots of pics of OEM and aftermarket options, then took into consideration my fabrication limits and came up with the design. It's pretty simple.

    the only thing I added was the seal along the top.

    the bottom has the rubber skirt to seal against the intercooler, I added a rubber hose (split length wise) to the top flap that seals along the top of the scoop to catch all the air and direct it through the intercooler.

    Well done. Did you copy someone's splitter or reference pics? I only ask because it looks pretty damn close to the OEM part.

    The final was pretty close to this, but I still had to trim it a bit to get the fitment right.
