    Ya'know I did a right-up/post about making your own back in '06, and can't seem to find it.... maybe it's the broken link in post #3...

    Anyway, I took my old acid eaten, chewed-up original and made a template/pattern. Found some thick cardboard (Bainbridge 5-ply I think). Cut it out, lightly scoured the back and seamed-bent it. Premiered it, and sprayed it flat silver.... It's what I have in the car today....

    No idea for the best repro, I bought one via local Porsche shop. If you are interested I have two spare old original ones.

    Regards,

    I bought one from Sierra Madre years ago. I thought it was quite good.

    This is fantastic, it was bugging me to no end trying to figure this out! Couldn't even figure out if I needed therapy to get over it or because of it...

    So, if I get it, a RoW 1972 would not have a charcoal canister?

    I saw in one diagram a hose that I think connects to the nipple on the back of the engine tin that goes to ventilate the charcoal canister, was this actually used? Where did such a hose run through to get to the front (I never saw it in photos of the center tunnel).

    I'm going to start by making one from Chuck's diagram (thanks!) while I figure out what to do. Maybe Cees will accept to part with the second example, for once shipping will be on this side of the world!

    I did the same as Chuck, except I used thermoform plastic as used to make holsters, which I sourced at Tandy Leather. Painted it silver. Way more durable than the cardboard version.

    I have an ROW 72, there are no hoses to the engine bay. Both the fan shroud fitting, and the tee on the back of the aircleaner are plugged.I have an ROW 72, there are no hoses to the engine bay. Both the fan shroud fitting, and the tee on the back of the aircleaner are plugged.
