Re: [DML] Re: lower evap casing

There are two problems with that drain.  The first is that the hose takes a pretty
tortured path from the housing along the frame to just behind the right front wheel.
The hose can't drain all that well, so any dirt that gets into the hose won't get flushed
out under normal use.  

The second problem is that leaves, etc. can enter the housing through the fresh air
intake below the windshield.  The grille is too open to keep stuff out.  So, it might
be worthwhile to put in a finer mesh screen below the grille to keep dirt out.
