Intake, Cold Air Intake / CAI Fender Wall Liner - Custom

Custom Fender Wall Liner Watershield for Cold Air Intake
By CloNeGTS, July 4, 2001

For anyone with a Cold Air Intake, you have or should have realized the risk involved with having your Air Filter so close to the ground and near the elements. The CAIs currently available for the Celica have the filter in the same location. Here is a way to make a watershield that will keep most of the moisture you encounter away from your filter.



You will need:

A plastic sign (approx 2' x 2') available anywhere garage sale signs are sold
4 - 1.5" bolts with matching nut
8 - 1" diameter washer that will not slide over nut or bolt head
Wire Ties
Black spray paint

Here is what you are trying to make. See how the sign is held to the fender well from the inside and the bolts are passed through the holes in the fender well to secure the barrier to the fender well liner? It's about that simple to do. Pull the plastic pins that hold the liner up so you have room to reach inside. Cut the sign so that it covers all the holes but still fits easily. Then poke the holes through the sign and bolt it to the fender well liner with the bolts and washers. Notice I am missing a bolt...make sure the nuts are tight! I used a few wire ties to secure the sign while I bolted it in. These also add a little stability to the barrier. Paint the sign and bolts black so that it is not easily visible.

You might also notice that I used a scrap piece of the sign to cover up where I cut too much liner away when installing the CAI. This helps keep the engine bay cleaner.

or something thats probably better in terms of looks... is i took clear 2liter plastic and cut it just right to fit the holes..

then i used black silicon to stick and seal it in.. simple as that and it looks like you never covered up anything and you can see the CAI filter a bit too grin
