I did this. I made the retainer ring out of 1/4 MDF with a few hole saws and a drill press, but a handheld drill would work fine. Basically, you just make two donuts for lack of a better word. Diameter of the inner hole is 3in if I remember right. Then the top donut is the diameter of the round boot with the same size inner hole as the bottom - top donut is larger than the bottom donut so there's space to fit the boot around. I beveled the edges of the top donut to make getting the boot on easier. Anyway, bottom donut to the tunnel with sheet metal screws, top donut to bottom donut with whatever method you choose - I used a few short panhead wood screws, then fit the round boot over that. Works fine so far and you can't see anything under the boot. Easy to remove.
