I ended up getting a STP Air Filter (SA8037) at AutoZone for around $18.00. It seemed to have just the right size and look because I was able to match up the chin vent mesh exactly to the ESB screenshots.

The first filter I tried was a FRAM filter from Wal-Mart but the mesh was too small to be accurate. If I can’t find the right mesh for the mouth vent I may be forced to have to make my own. :pale

I finally went out and got a large truck filter and the mesh on that was just the right size for the chin vent. :)

Though after looking at some reference shots from ESB it seems to me that the mesh in the mouth vent is different from the mesh in the chin vent. Same height but about double the width.

The Vent and the Mouth are the same size.. I took some mesh that I have
and just bent it over to the angel of my Vader helmet to show you that it's
just an illusion making the mouth look bigger :)
