Raindeer,
Can't help you with a snazzy bought one. However, I know of people with other vehicles that have not had a snorkel available and they've managed to get a custom made item made up (or have done it themselves).
The 2 methods I've seen have involved using PVC pipe and appropriate elbows etc plus a Safari or Air-tec ram head or Donaldson pre-cleaner

OR

for a bit of a better look you could do the same with stainless steel.

Both methods require 3" pipe. As for the under-bonnet fitting, you can get flexible ribbed-rubber hosing to go to your air filter box (the kind of rubber that concertina's around bends etc).

Hope this is of some help; although I know it's not what you were thinking of probably.
Cheers,
Roachie

For a bar try 4X4 supplies @ Gawler SA. He has one to suit for $400.

Hey i third that notion. If you manage to source any of the above i'd like to know about it. I'd really like a bull bar for mine to protect the front end a bit.

Use the exploroz search engine - there were a number of thoughts on this a while ago - maybe 12 - 18 months - also East Coast Bullbars in Qld do nudge bars and bull bars -ecb.com.au - give them a try -

Can't help with snorkel but as for bar, find one that fits the front & get an engineering place to change the mounting brackets to suit as you won't find a commercially made one to fit as there aren't enough terranos around to make it worth there while.Regards Bob
Where to next

Try a phone call to Opposite Lock in Brisbane. (Even just for the info)
From memory (now that's a worry nowadays) they fitted one to a mates '91 model. I think it came from a Triton or a Courier or something like that.
Let us know how you go
Good luck

Had a mate with an early pathfinder (same I think) and Safari does a snorkel to suit SS700HF.

Have seen a Navarra running round with one.Not sure of brand but as the Navarra has the same front end panels as a Terrano it should fit.May need to adapt connection under bonnet but this should be straight forward to any 4WD business that is willing to assist with "grey imports".I am keen to get one myself. As far as bar work goes anything that fits a Navarra or Pathfinder will be OK.Once again dont be put off by business' who dont want to help with imports.I stood my ground and have a Terrano fitted out with Navarra and Pathfinder accessories that fit like a glove.
