The bonnet is up and the 4x4 is ready for us to get to work on fitting the snorkel. 

Lay the template out in position along the front right wing as per the instructions (supplied with the snorkel). Fix it in place with the adhesive tape.  

Mark up the drill holes with the white marker pen, then remove the template.

Now the drill holes are all marked out, all that remains is to drill and cut the wing. This can seem quite daunting!

Use the compass to mark out where the hole needs to be to connect the snorkel through the wing.

Use the pneumatic cutter to cut out the hole. Alternatively, you can drill out a series of holes then cut out with a small angle grinder. 

Apply anti-rust treatment to the drilled holes and the main hole to prevent corrosion over time.

Remove the inner wheel arch protection.
TIP: Best have some new clips to hand because they can easily break when dismantling. 

Mark up, drill out and attach the bracket to the right hand  'A' pillar.
Don't forget to apply anti-rust treatment to the holes!

Maks some space for the snorkel around the inner wing.

Fit the hose between the snorkel and the airbox, attach the snorkel to the outside of the wing as per the instructions, then refit the inner wheel arch protection.

Job done! This particular client decided to have the snorkel head facing backwards.
