As I sit here hoping my bonus check will get here soon so I can order my Volant, I've been searching through all the posts from happy customers, and drooling. Except for one thing. It always seems like the the rubber gasket that seals against the hood looks kinked or twisted or just not right. Is there any reason you cant ditch the gasket altogether, and make a shield to cover the top, that could be easily removed to clean the filter? I'm using a couple of Ed_cloud9's dress up parts, and thought a similer piece would be perfect. Any thoughts on this?
