So I ordered a Air Filter from Rouge Element components. Well it won't look good screwed down to my hood, an air filter go's on a carburetor. Looking at left over parts from a Wild Willy parts tree, I see it.:idea: I know its hard to see but its in there. You need two sets to build one.

The winch fairlead is both sides and gear cover is the float bowls.

The top is cut off the winch spool at the cable.

Only thing not from parts tree is the base plate its a piece of .80 styrene.

Used the valve from the NoS tank just cuz it looks cool.

The size is closer to 1/8 than 1/10 I think.

Very nice. I bought 2 of those air cleaners from Rouge... going to put them on our NQD Jet boats (already have modded headers on there)... need to build a base to lift the air cleaner up... love your carb idea. Don't have the parts you have... so mine will likely have to be a scratch build. I almost think the air cleaner looks small on your truck... don't think it's 1/8 scale... but it still looks awesome!! Nice work!
