Go to an outdoor store and buy a fuel cannister for a camping stove. They
come in various colors and sizes and are made of aluminum, or aluminium. I
drilled holes around the top of mine to allow it to breath and not blow the
hose out of the top if it gets a good shot of oil or coolant.

They also make them for drinking -- those are the ones that are really cheap
and come in various colors as well as straight alu sometimes.

They work great. You can also use bike water bottle holders to hold them in
your engine bay.

Pete,

There is an Elan air filter housing like you've been looking for on Ebay right now. Good luck.

Roger
