    RE: Air Vent

    ive been looking for this post for awhile as i found out that if you cut out the rectangle in front window it allows for access to fuel tank so you dont need to remove body to put fuel in i just attached a zip tie to fuel door and use the zip tie as handle to lift fuel door check it out

    Hey man that's a great idea with the mesh, It'll def. help keep crap that you don't want in there out. Also makes for a real clean look.

    But, yeah yours is cool too, I mean hell it's functional. It's sucks always having to remove those damn pins to get to the tank. You know what A+ to both of you.

    RE: Air Vent

    RE: Air Vent

    I mean you could but i don't think it'd really help with air flow all that much more. It'd probably make more of a mess than anything. I guess i'm just a wuss, but i love a clean car [sm=cool.gif]

    If your buggy was black in color,it would be the bat mobile.Paint it black and put the bat sign on it.
    That would look awesome.Ok So i'm a retard,just bored with nothing else to do,lol.

    RE: Air Vent

    You can always get a refuelling valve like for the airplanes and never take the body off. Looks hi tech too !!
