Talking CHEAP Radiator Shrouds - Customizable

WHAT: Aluminum Impreza Radiator Shrouds. (Fit ONLY 2002-2007 Imprezas)
Made from solid 6061 Aluminum, .062" Thick for sturdy construction. Lighter and more affordable than Stainless Steel or Titanium, but looks just as good and is just as durable for this application. The parts are all professionally powder coated for abrasion, corrosion, and scratch resistance.

WHY: To keep air flowing through the radiator and not through the gap between the radiator and frame. This increases radiator efficiency and prevents dirt from blowing around the engine bay. This shroud also adds a stylish accent to the engine bay of your car, customized or not, it looks very good.

PRICE: $30 +shipping, plus extra for customized options like laser engraved tags or vinyl decals

OPTIONS:

  • Two Versions depending on your intake setup:
    • Standard Version: Includes holes to mount the intake snorkel tube
    • Smooth Version: Does not have intake snorkel mounting holes, this makes a cleaner appearance (shown below)
  • Two WC Lathe Werks decal colors:
    • Black Decal
    • Silver Decal
    • Other Decal colors are available upon request (extra fee may apply)

  • Add Laser-Engraved plaque. The plaque black anodized aluminum and measures 1" tall x 6" long and affixes to the shroud with industrial tape. Engraved text appears silver.
  • Add custom die-cut vinyl decals which can be affixed in any position on the shroud.

ACTUAL PRODUCT PHOTOS:







The two small holes are for the stock air intake snorkel to bolt onto. Most people might not use this anymore. So those holes are optional. Here is a picture of the shroud without those intake snorkel holes.






INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS:

Stock Setup
STEP 1 - Remove stock radiator brackets
STEP 2 - Slide on new radiator shroud
STEP 3 - Re-install brackets
STEP 4 - Re-install stock bolts (10mm socket)


Delivery time will be around Mid November for finalizing the first run and getting them powder coated. The pre-orders will help me divide the parts for black or silver coating. I have received 27 orders at this point already so it is looking good.

UPDATE: I just changed the finish to Black and Silver POWDERCOAT.
I will no longer make them black and clear anodized. The Powdercoat looks much better, covers up surface imperfections, and withstands more abuse than the anodizing. All current orders for Black Anodize will be coming in Black Powdercoat. Pics are shown above

Update: I am no longer going to offer the silver powdercoat as an option. I have only sold one of those and that is not even close to enough to profitably offer the color option. Mr. Nguyen will get his part in silver, but no others will be done at this point. Thank you for your understanding.
