The first thing to do is figure out just where there is room to put it and then cut a big hole in the inner fender panel.
Lining up the air tube, you can see that it extends way past the inner fender panel so it will have to end up being trimmed down.
The air cleaner housing is set in place up under the front fender and tucks in nicely behind the headlight housing.
This position allows just enough room to get the filter into the housing without having to move anything.
The filter also clears the radiator shroud.
Here is a photo looking down on the shroud and the air cleaner.
Here is a tricky metal panel that took a little time to figure out just how it had to be shaped.
This panel replaces the metal that was cut out of the inner fender panel and attaches to the air filter housing.
Everything is riveted in place and will have adhesive sealant spread on the seams once everything is primed.
How the inner fender looks from the top side.
The mating edges of the panels are primed before assembly so the isn't any bare metal to metal joints.
