The side intake grill can be removed by unscrewing the two Phillips head screw that hold it in place. This can be replaced by the "rare $180 Ebay" Holley ram air side scoop. Originally $4.95. Or there are after market scoops that can be used replacing the "rare Holley scoop".

If you are ingenious enough, you can make your own using some PVC pipe or fiberglass.

Very little is achieved by this addition except to lighten your wallet.

Mine are still in progress, as you can see.

Remove upper trim piece, and the screws around the wheel opening. then remove lower trim to gain access to the rivets across the bottom.
I used the honeycomb screen from a retired rear grate to cover the opening on mine BTW.

Russ,

Lookin' good! Can you shed some details? Is this a modification of an original urethane quarter panel or fiberglass?

Thanks!
It's just a simple modification to the existing panel. Just carefully cut out the area, then set it back in using small pie cut pieces of fiberglass on each side.
Fiberglass, bondo and elbow grease
