Pod Air Filters to fit GL500

Hi All, I'm new to the forum. I am building a street tracker using a 1982 GL500 .
I am struggling with fitting pod air filters as the gap between the carbs and the frame is fairly small . I have thought about trying to mould standard pod filters around the frame. Its a posh was of saying I was going to bend them out of shape to fit...!!! Has anyone used shallower filters or is there another workround to fix this problem.?

Many thanks in advance..

yes, mine are stock carbs, cleaned and rejet.

NOTE: I inserted solid plugs, about 5 inches long, where the loop was welded to the frame, thus not needing gussets.
