    howdy, i used some green foam i had laying around . you want to make sure you support carb side of filter so it does't get sucked into motor.i used the stock plastic screen worked fine.make sure you swiss cheesse the tins base so your motor has good air flow.first time i ran this had holes aound botom perimiter of base later i decided to put in as many wholes as possible while retaining strength

    I usually hate the taste of altoids so I have no can yet... Right now I am focusing attention on your seat. Most agree the seat needs to be set back and lowered into the groove between the fender and the frame. Your unique approach works perfect. styling wise, it's is up there with the Show Bikes
