So the air in will come through the center of the filter? May have to watch for it clogging a bit sooner that way, not as much surface area in there.

I may be wrong here but I always thought a pleated type filter had the same surface area both on the inside and outside. Just the pleats on the inside are closer together.

Come on who's bought it then?
Sold for Euro 2710, that makes me feel an awful lot better about what i've spent on mine

John


That's about 3500 USD.
Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy too.

This may be true, Gav. But there is a smaller area for grass clippings and such to clog it.

I think we may both be correct on this one

I think I'll make a few, but they won't be changed daily. Impossible to just slide in there, the
whole grill has to be removed (with lights). It'll be a seasonal changeover. Yeah, like an attachment.


Or like tire chains.....One color for winter, one for summer.

Will, you're killing me over here!!!!! :rolling:

Before I enlarged it, I thought 'why the heck did he paint Maynard on his grill?' Then I saw that it was a steering wheel, not a beard!!

:bigrofl: :bigrofl: :bigrofl: :bigrofl:

I'm making it to your house one day, and I'm bringing lots of beer.

Oh my gosh, no. He's in my family portrait, and apparently, he'll be here soon, for
the turkey feast.

NO way he's getting on the front of the Elf. :D :D :D

Come visit any time, but don't bring beer. There's always enough here.
