I believe the yellowing is a result of poor materials and chrome.
I put my garage door opener in the same place! I wired it to my high-beam flash switch. All I have to do is flash my high beams and don't have to fumble with my keypad any more.
I have searched the Internet and cannot find the ace air filter you decided not to use. Do you have a link to it? Or brand name or something.I would make my own like you did, but I don't have time right now. Maybe some time this winter.
Beard, they dont make them anymore. In fact, they never did for the c5, it was a previous gen accessory.I've seen one and its just a piece of rubber pipe with a screw collar and a plumbing section from the hardware store (4"through piece with a smaller side outlet), then they use a filter and cap just like mine from a auto parts store.. its probably $25 in parts. They also spray paint it black and made some mounts from pieces of metal.
Ya lets see pics.. You should start a blog too!
I took some today as I was getting the rear fender situated and making the air filter, I've got to make a bracket for it so it sits lower, my plumbing fixture hose connection is about an inch lateral from where it needs to connect. I will post a new blog tomorrow. I can't upload pictures from my iPad and my computer is about 8 years old and doesn't listen to me anymore.I made the canister out of a 4" plumbing cap and went to the auto parts store and guess what size air filter they had? 4". I drilled the holes and painted it the matching red. It looks sweet. Did the whole thing for about $30 for parts, also for a hole drill bit and epoxy.
