Default how to build a zim station

So, I have been saving an old shop vac so I can use it to rig up a zim station out of PVC so that the exhaust will be sucked out of the building, and it will hold down the shirt at the same time. maybe turn it on with a foot peddle or a switch. Any ideas on how to rig this up the best way?

Where the shirt lays on top of the pipe I have a PVC grate female that slips into the pipe. I cover that with 200 white mesh, to hold this is a rubber pipe coupling cut in half. I lay the mesh over the end then slide the coupling over, no clamp needed. I have the thing wired so the switch turns on the vac and powers the outlet for the spot gun. It is not vented out side. DO NOT USE WITH FLAMMABLE CLEANERS.
