    i made a few changes.the shoot was only 3 ft high.its now 6ft.the hose on the top has a round bracket with a square hole in it for the shoot.i made feet on the bottom to raise it up a little.the reason why i raised it is because its going in a basket i made for my trailer.the fan housing doesn't clear the basket sides.
