Fantastic! Can you post more pics here? Don't hold back. can you also provide height installed?

You should seriously work out an arrangement with the likes of MudUK on reselling these for you.

Update. it's landyauction, not ladyauction. www.landyauction.co.uk/

What is the purpose of the dimple on top of the cover?

Just a bit of indervidual styling, the opening of the intake is angled/swept upwards towards the cab to help prevent water splashing up.

I definitely need one of these as I have had the intake frozen solid at which point there is not heat coming out of the heater (for obvious reasons). My concern is that this would restrict the airflow even more. Someone should make one of these that retains the perforations where your decorative dimple is located. That way the pre-existing airflow is maintained and even if it would freeze up the side vent would provide enough airflow for the heater to operate. Damn, I'm smart.

Yup. I would have to get the metal one though. Not sure about drilling fiberglass.

Are you going with NLX to South America, Mark? Make sure to post tons of pictures!

I haven't noticed much difference in the air flow with the cover on and with the fan on, but if you are relying on just air being pushed through then yes it does restrict it.
It's a good idea about putting the holes in the top like you said, but then you fall back on the problem of crap getting into the system which the cover was designed to stop. I fitted one to mine and never looked back but before any one says any thing of course I'm going to say that.
I dont know if you guys do this already, you might want to try is putting a sheet of Perspex plastic/PVC behind the grill to block the air flow totally to the rad I fitted mine the other week and the temp over here is around 8 degrees Celsius during the day I travelled 100 miles went off roading for the day then drove 100 miles back and the temp gauge didnt move at all from the normal position.
As for drilling fibreglass it's ok as long as you tape up both sides first and use a very high RPM drill with blunt drill bits "so it doesn't catch"

Nice looking part! I've been meaning to get the military version, but keep putting it off. I guess I've run out of excuses. The typical airscoop/covers are fine for keeping out light snow, but in a serious snowstorm, they plug right up. This should solve my problem.

When will you list more on eBay?

Cheers,

Mike

Thanks overlander, glad your happy with your cover.
I sent yours by fedex so you get it quickly and write a review.
Just so very one knows The price includes normal international postage, if you want I can send by fedex but that will cost an extra £25 and it should be with you in around 4 days.
