I saw a great technique that Dave Rose used on the screen on his Lilly Belle. He uses a paper towel (or a rag?) and blots the top of the screen while it is running to keep everything from going out the cheater hole. The effect of a lazy plume coming through the screen really makes for a great prototypical effect!

Dave's Lilly Belle is in a couple of shots in the middle of this clip and in the background (hidden) in the very last scene.

I don't know shays, but this may help.

Best regards,
