Another diy snorkel

So I got a custom metal top vent plate cut by Jeff, which is very cool. I bored a 3" inch hole, bought a 90 degree mandrel bent pipe from mandrelbends on Ebay then welded to Jeff's plate.

Sanding and priming done. Paint next.

Here it is painted. I primed it with rustoleum automotive primer, then used the pro enamel paint for a hard finish. Have to wait 24 hours to cure.

I'll post the final write up tomorrow with links and pics after I connect everything.
