    That will look very smart dilligaf. I know you have a fear of anything other than black. That would look smart mirror polished with the fins left black. Or the other way around. Black case with polished fins?

    Good luck & get a move on! :p

    Ok....so this is what I'm gonna do :) cut it to shape with elongated holes which I will cover in some sort of mesh from behind :cool:
    As you might have guessed I'm very very busy at work :rolleyes:
    So I've made a start :) IMG_0364.JPG air deburring tool and a hacksaw for starters IMG_0365.JPG IMG_0366.JPG

    Taking the webbing out of the inside of the cover so I can mount the mesh in there is proving to be a reet bastid :mad: IMG_0367.JPG IMG_0368.JPG

    Forget the sprocket cover, it's a fuse box cover you need ;)

    Cutting and filing the slots :)
    Bit more filing and dressing to do tomorrow then hopefully get a few coats of satin BLACK :cool:paint on and hang it up somewhere to dry over the weekend :)
    Just gotta find some suitable mesh from somewhere :rolleyes:
    Either aluminium or stainless steel
    Probably cut up an air filter of some sort :p
