    Intake grate girdle - special instructions?

    I'm bringing my skis home from the cabin today, so I can start installing my first mods. WOOT!

    I've got instructions from Riva's site for most of the bits, and found a how-to here on the site for the RE OPAS block off kit, but the only thing I'm not clear on is how to install the girdle with the Riva intake grate. The grate and girdle came off Jacob Hill's blazing fast '04 RXP hull, so I'm assuming that any grinding needed to make the girdle fit my '06 has already been done.

    Anyone got a photo of an intake grate with the girdle also on so I can see what it should look like when I'm done? Or any other advice when I go to mount it up?

    Thanks - can't wait to start modding!

    Great to "meet" you on the phone, Jacob.

    Jacob's the MAN, people. He gave me a good deal on a bunch of parts from his old ski, let me call and stayed on the phone with me today (even after a long shift at the Toyota plant) as I crawled under my boat and removed the stock intake grate, then let me text him photos and walked me through some snags as I installed the Speedfreaks pump shoe insert and the Riva intake girdle just now. So to answer my own question, THIS is what it should look like.
