Default Custom Rad cover

Following the recommendation from 1993 SLE I cut out a Grand Am cover to fit the Bonne.

I looks pretty good IMO.

Only takes a few seconds to remove or re-install.

The stripes are temporary and easily removable until I replace them with a better decal(*).

Looks Great Paul, I think someone started a trend lol
The stripes go along well with the tone of everything else under the hood

Pat said a non-ram air piece wouldn't work...

Anything will work if you have the right pair of scissors and exacto knife.

It'* by no means a perfect fit.

The only difference between this standard one and the Ram Air one is the Ram Air logo.
I actually thought it would come with the Ram Air logo but it didn't. :(

not exactly....see Paul has his mounted in a different location....go back and look at the pics again...espically where the front bupmer is and where the hood stops are....



Paul also used the factort clips in the bumper to attach his...i could not do this because of the Bra that i have...i wouldnt have been able to attach the top part with the shroud mounted like Pauls....

mine is flush against the core support, and Pauls is NOT.....that one wont clear the supports in the front...the ram air one does because its raised up to allow for the intake...and it hits the bottom of the supports....

yes i could have mounted mine futher away from the Core support but i wanted it flush against it..

Looks to me like Paul'* install suits it perfectly, and provides the desired effect.

Right Pat. You're still better. It'* ok.

Paul, I like it. Much better than with the Ram-Air. It looks OEM, nice clean and neat.
