Default New underhood mod

Check this out-I pulled it off of an Explorer this morning to try it out. I'm diggin' it. Had to do a little trimming and fab-up some brackets, then sprayed on some gloss black Fusion.

I'm pretty sure it's on '97-'01 Explorers-If it doesn't have the V8 emblems on the fenders, it should have one of these.

I'll see if I can get some pics of the brackets with dimensions-the mock-up ones that I made yesterday were a little thin, so i fabbed-up some new ones, plus added a 4th one, out of 1/8"x1/2" aluminum stock tonight. Sprayed them with some Rustoleum spray-in bedliner-gives them a nice texture, and they disappear in the engine compartment.
I meant to take some pictures of the areas I needed to trim, but it was pretty much trial-and-error---trim a little, test fit, trim some more, test fit--you get the picture. It will be pretty obvious where it will need to be trimmed-near the throttle cable and around the arc for the intake tube are where the bulk of the trimming is needed.
Thanks
