Any opinions on that, i was thinking maybe i should make yet another cowl to cover the sides. Or jsut...

    Problem installing air intake rubbers

    The rubber connectors were too short. I will extend it a little bit with a 3rd printer adapter. I also need to pull them down because of my electronics tray

    Problem installing air intake rubbers

    I found rubber bits used for car carburetors. They go from 55mm inner diameter to 45mm. The external diameter of the filters is 46mm. I think 1mm strecht with bew rubber should be possible. There was no luck woth the crusty hardened rubbers i already had.
