Default Vac formed nosecone vent

I have been given some vac formed vents that will suit the nosecone on my Haynes bodywork now here is that plan

The shape is front the vent on a cooper s but the shape closely suits the profile on my nosecone

I have got 5 but I am keeping one to blend into a nose and take a mould from that "when I get chance" so I have 4 to sell

They are vac formed and clear so will be easy to locate on the nose (or whatever you wanna put them on)

The price is 18 each posted

The photo is really hard to see but you can see the vent

I have already checked the curves on the haynes nosecone and this is as close as fit as you will get, and where it is positioned will lend itself to an excellent cold air feed to an air filter, already got one planned for my roadster

They work very well. The one fitted to mine is original mini so I used all the original mountings. With gentle heat you can make it match exactly.



Good price offered by vmax. Mini copies are generally 25+
