Re: Is it possible ...

as long as you measure twice cut once yes...might have some issues cutting the underside where the bracing is for the hood, but i wouldn't see why a good sawzaw wouldn't fix that

My Dremel 4000 would make short work of a job like that! You should do it, maybe even do a build thread about it.

Idk how much a shop would charge but a water jet would cut it real nice and they can make it far more accurate then measuring with a tape

Hahaha, that is funny as Hell. And yes, I get it, and kinda agree. That is a awsome looking add-on, but I don't have the balls to try it. Not even Ballsy enough to let a Shop do it.

Re: Is it possible ...

can and should might be two different answers.

ram air wont work, and you dont want water getting all in your engine bay.

Completely understandable! No problem, I forget being in a big city (or close by) you can find lots of people looking to do trades. Not so easy where I live, like I said I was really just trying to help you out here, good luck!
