Well Stan I have a Lethe in Work . Plan is to take one of the side panels off the bike and turn the same shaped knob that will push into the rubber holes that are on the airbox . I’ll thread the other end then drill clearance hole in new airbox covers and fit a slim nut on the inside and purchase nice chromed dome nuts for the outside . I’ve also just purchased some polished stainless 1.5mm sheet and I’ll fabricate the covers from this , I have metal bender also in Work but the thin plate could also be bent in a vice with soft jaws to protect the finish . I’d be happy to purchase original chrome covers but can’t find them here in UK and like yourself I enjoy the challenge of doing my own stuff !

Plastic post replacements are available, not sure how well they'd stick to SS though.
