Question for those who have installed the Thunder Tornado Chrome Covers on their Thunder Air Kits.

Well after a short year and seven month wait :D my chrome fluted covers arrived. The instructions tell you to remove the manifolds and the filters from the manifolds and carefully slip on the cover mounting ring, reinstall the air filter, and then trim the excess rubber off of the filter where the hose clamp is before installing the cover. The problem is that the filter bottoms out on the end (front) of the cover (inside the cover) and wont allow the cover to go in enough to allow the holes on the mounting ring to line up with the holes on the cover. The reason, the hose clamp bolt (the part that sticks up) gets in the way and the ring wont clear it.

Again the cover wont slide in any further to allow it to line up with the ring because the filter is bottomed out on the inside of the cover.

Im likely doing something wrong but I cant figure it out..DUH!!

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
