    1st - that was hard to read. Take a breath, compose sentences, use spacing, etc. It just makes it easier and you will get more replies.

    2nd - I dont know about car fresheners, there is a DIY carbon filter for computer fans around here somewhere, but you would probably need to combine that with some ona gel or something.

    3rd - dont use tin foil. it reflects heat. Get some mylar, white poly, or flat white paint.

    4th - For veg you want 6500k bulbs. They are sold as "daylight". You may have to look around. the kelvin temp (ie 6500k, 5000k, etc) is hard to find, its usually on the back of the package in small print.

    5th - for flower you will want to get 2700k bulbs, they are advertised as soft I think.

    Extra - I dont fully grasp what it looks like, but you want your exhaust at the top. If you have two fans make them both exhaust at the top and let the intake be passive (ie no fan) on the bottom.

    good luck. If you can snap a picture of that thing it would help people help you. And see how I broke this up into different points with spacing? I used numbers but thats just my style. :smoking: :wave:
