    stainless under the bonnet! A piece of art!

    Hi. After struggling to find an stainless steel fabrication to heat shied and move my K&N at trax i decided to do some hunting! Found a guy in Birmingham who will fabricate what seems to be a piece of art! Likes to think he has some artistic flare! He is prepared to do a one off comissioned piece, extending the pipework to place the filter above the old air intake, (1.8 16v ecotec), a shroud to stop warm air from the engine and a fancy design cut into it!!!! Thought maybe a marijuana leaf! Will keep you informed of price and service, if interested, and will post photos at some point in the gallery.(This i will do anyway!)
    If anyone could suggest any designs please let me know.
    Thanks

    He is in the jewelry quarter! Just round the corner from where i work! Will get his number if you like! Suggest you check out the work on mine first, yours is too nice to screw up with a crap bit of work! I expect you would want to see it first anyway! He didn't have a clue what i wanted, K&N ect! and had never dreamed of doing work for modifiers, lets hope hes good!!!!!!! (and cheap, a stainless battery cover at trax was £45 if i remember rightly!)
