300Tdi snorkel installation

Does somebody have the specific measurements or can you post a picture so I can roughly eyeball where the windscreen support mounts are supposed to be and how high the top should be as well(in relation to the roof or top of the windscreen?

I finally got around to having the welds grinded and rewelded so that the snorkel mounts on a RHD truck. I'm pretty excited about this as the intake currently goes across the entire engine bay to the left hand side of the truck and this should make it smoother looking and shorter and add the benefit of a snorkel. Also I don't know how to rotate images from my iPhone.

Bump. I realized I said NAS V8 snorkel. Really what I'm after is where a 300tdi snorkel mounts on the windscreen frame. I realized the NAS V8 snorkel are all going to mount on the roll cage portion. Any help or a picture of how yours is mounted on the windscreen would be great just so I can see where the supports are supposed to screw in.

If a mod can change the title that would be handy.

what i did was,
2 sections of 1/2" angle iron 3" long, grind ends a little to tastes, paint black
welded a threaded rod sticking forward from wind screen,paint black
drill two holes in angle iron for rivets to the screen frame n rivet in
two fence brackets from Ace hardware around pipe to thread on angle iron
a little bit of rubber to stop the bi-metal corision
put bolt on , done
all can be done in galvy too!!! just grind off a little to weld

FWIW....I made mine from a Defender 200TDI down pipe, once you see it you'll laugh and wish you'd seen it eailer, fits perfect!!!

Thanks. Then pic is of my truck with what I've got mocked up sitting in place. I've got all the parts(found them used in different batches) I'm just curious where you screwed/riveted the bits of angle iron specific in inches or something from the top of the windscreen or something and how high the top snorkel sits in relation to something.

placed angle iron on the front side of the screen frame behind the snorkel.... if i could figure pics out I'd post one, take a few minutes n look at it you'll see how to hide it n not be noticed...always figured if someone is looking that close they'll find something else first

Yeah. I got that. That part is fairly obvious. How far up the front facing part of the windscreen did you put the two pieces is what I'm wondering. Does that make sense what I am asking.

I don't have directions from the company and they would normally give you measurements of where to put the holes for the self tapping screws on the windscreen that is the only question I have in addition to how high up the top should be.
