I have decided to make my own snorkel using a Donalson 3" air ram and some PVC pipe (about 3-4mm thick) which I will paint. Before I cut the HJ75 to bits does anyone have any comments for this poor bugger. cheers

Furphy I dont whant to be rude but they look like sh-t when done that way . Fork out a few hundred bucks and get the properly made one and keep your resale value for the truck.
All the best

Eric,
A snorkle for $280. I have searched around my area (Central Qld.) and the cheapest i can find is $426 + $100 for fitting. I have a HJ 75 and would like to fit a snorkle. Could you supply me with details of the Adelaide supplier if possible.
Thanks in advance and cheers.

Sorry Furphy but they do tend to look like the venturi vent on a sewerge system.
The main problem I have with one of these set ups is the pvc you are going to use is brittle and will get more brittle and break easily.
Here is 2 alternatives look in trading posts or ebay for a 2nd hand one or build it out of 60mm black polythene irrigation pipe.At least from a distance it will look better and wont go brittle.

Furphy
If your truck is a scruffy looking thing that looks home made and amature then your plan may be okay. Other than that the exhaust idea could be ok but get the angles right and get it "Mandrel bent" or use weld in elbows, only if you can weld well. And paint it black or the same colour as your car
