I like the "Drip Edge" you had formed into the bottom of each panel.

I used a stiff steel wire with a hook bent into the end to pull the insulation out. The fiberglass would not pull, it just broke into bits every 3 inches or so.

High pressure water will also blast the insulation out of the ribs. Water also eliminates the dust issue.

Finished mounting one side, need to start on the other. I'll do all the drilling, screwing and sealing this coming week since I have little time off from work.

There are two screws holding each panel in place for now.

I want to develop a bold design for the intake and exhaust, but since they both happen here at the rear passenger side, I'm not sure I can really do much. Hmmmm

I saw it when I posted it but didn't last night. Might have been a glitch. I can see it now but I will repost.

I have seen lots with chrome stacks off the back corners. Engine one side, genny venturing stack on the other.
