Charcoal canister

Yes... this stupid thing gets its own thread. I had to cut a hole in my fender to run external fron shocks so I had to relocate the charcoal canister. I did a real shitty job relocating it and just bascially hung it off with some ties holding it in place. I drove it for about 6 months and didn't think twice about it.

Long story short, the heat from the manifold burned a huge 6 inch hole in the canister, and I guess I need to replace it. Do I need to really replace it!? they are so expensive. Is there a cheap generic one I can use instead?

Some states require them to be in place for smog inspections, etc.

Maybe a used one from a disco or RRC will work?
