Weird CC, I thought those tubes were hollow.

I personally would loose the cap and try something a little smaller. It looks out of place on there. Or it is just the color that makes it look so big? :?

Its really just to set on top covering the hole when its not being used .that way nothing can fall in and get stuck in the fan. altho im thinking of making one that sets just above it so i dont have to take it off everytime

Although was the word i was going for. :lol: the lid would be just above the inlet (manhole) so that air could be pulled in by the fan it would be hels up by 4 to 6 1/16 rods glued under the cap and to the sides of the inlet.
