[Es2] brief project update

Mine has the snorkel (part that sticks out towards the headlight and
into the base of the box) removed.  I'd like to make something similar
to the RS2 (which has a bigger snorkel than the late S2 one I've got).
So, any pictures of that would help.

The S2/RS2 box-in the area behind the headlight to direct air into the
snorkel, and keep you from injesting hot air from the engine
compartment.  I think I can create something like the 7A used to
accomplish the same.

Chris, I have an RS2 airbox and can snap some pix tonight.  Any specific
requests?  Mine just sucks air from the back of the headlight.  I
suppose funneling air to it a little better might help, but the car is
plenty fast as is.
