My only concern would be the small diameter (50mm) tube

Pop

Have a look here
Elephant Trunk

JWs method is a good one (as always), and for once does not require an angle grinder.

sorry people no pictures after the arrival of my first baby boy on sunday the video camara has not left the hospital.

1 i have cut the holes they are 700mm wide on each side of the engine bay.
2 got the trunks made up by scott at rib repair (great job).
3 i put resin all over the holes and let it sink in.
4 i then glassed the hole and sanded it back.
5 when i offered it up she need a tap in.
6 after struggaling to get the pipe out again i coated it with resin and set them in place.
7 then attached the trunks with some heavy duty clips an some stickaflex.

they look great plus i saved a load of money even though i had to by a new drill after burning mine out. i hope to get some pics when i have camara at home and show you what the out come was.

thanks for all you advice people you made it easy to do.

Congrats Pop for a healthy Baby Boy.

Looks as though you're well chuffed on both fronts (Baby and Trunks). Perhaps for your next project some hypalon Bibs
