Need the real thing. Real measurements and reference photos will definitely help.Will make scale drawings from the 1:1 prototype. I guess cans from any truck will do, I'd think that they are all generally the same, such as 15" dia. and maybe 24-30" in. length. I'd like to know where in screened parts are located if any and how wide they are along the length of the can, like three in. or six in. Also the diameter of the duct work entering the can from the engine compartment is critical to my need.
