Well, I fianlly went out yesterday bought a filter and the PVC pieces I needed. Filter was a cheap $15 Pep Boys deal. I got a small piece of 3" PVC pipe from Home Depot. They wanted me to buy the whole 10' pipe.. found a small piece in the back they marked it down to $2. I bought a 3" 45 degree elbow and a 3" to 2" adapter so thew filter would fit. I still have to get a clamp to hold the filter on as it's just sitting there right now. I laid the canister on it's side because many people said they did it with no problems. here is one pic I'll get more tomarrow... I'm gonna paint it black too.
