Cabin Air Filter

thats basically what you're supposed to use in an Air Filter. The ones you'd buy from, say, toyota are just fitted.

I use the 3M, I think 20x30x1 its white interwoven fibers (kinda fluffy) with and metal wire mess interwooven into the fibers...but it sounds like you got it right...I use two layers...Houston is nasty sometimes.

As long as it fits you're good to go...it might not last as long though...you might make sure it is rigid enough so it doesn't get pulled through the tray into the fan...this could be a prob but more than likely not.
