Cabin Air Filter installed
The cheapest mod ever cheers. I used a 3M furnace Air Filter to make a cabin Air Filter, since many of you know, there isn't one. So i'm posting pictures to show off my victory.

Good job. Jot down somewhere the date you put it in. Then look at it now & then and it will remind you to make another one. Really keeps the dust down.

Yeah. I thought $20 wouldn't be so bad, but I forgot about labor costs. $9.97 at Home Depot. grin I was horrible trying to cut the chicken wire. Thats why the filter is all lopsided. I had to rip some of it off and stuff it in the holes. rofl Haven't seen any dust yet and my car smells better. I think I might coin the phrase, new filter smell...Or not thumbsup

I'd tell you you'd get hp gains you wouldn't believe! But i'd be lying. grin

It filters anything like dirt, dust, debri, and dander you'd find on the road (I need an extra d). It really just keeps your car interior from collecting too much dust like on the steering wheel column and dash. It lets clean air in, which is especially good if you have allergies. thumbsup

Robare99, if you have pics of your filter, i'd love to see them. Dual layer sounds overkill.

Spaz, I ride open window too sometimes, but somedays I keep the windows up because it takes away the tight sound from my stock sound system. These days I use AC, but the filter still gets use.

Home Depot, $9.97
