Coolant Filter...diy?

After reading and looking at some pics, I need a coolant filter? My question is should I "diy" or just buy one?

Yes just spend the 130 and buy it, I am a plumber and use all the fittings and adapters every day, and it was worth the 40 bucks I would have saved for the time saved and the nice stainless bracket. Support some of these great guys from the site!
