You can use a Coleman lantern replacement glass chimney. I have done
this on several GS35b amps and they work perfectly. There are several
sizes available so measure carefully to get the right one. It will fit
with about a 1/8 inch gap and is just the right height. I mounted mine
with a dab of silicone RTV right to the chassis, easily removed if
ever necessary. 

As a bonus,the chimneys are made of very heat resistant glass.
