85 classic with the side heat vents

Does anybody have pictures of how the inner fender panels are cut/drilled to allow the hot air to escape out the side vents? or just a good description will work. I have 84 310 model without them and would like to install some to help get the engine compartment heat out.

any information will be greatly appreciated.

I have an early Argosy and trying to do exactly the same.

On the Argosy the cab floor is only just above the top of the wheel well and there doesn't seem a way to get the vents to fit.

Hopefully Brad, Peter of one of the 325/345 guys will be able to provide more information.

I am looking at using the Attwood narrow stainless steel louvered vent MFG Part # 1493-5 or 1499-5. They are about the same except the vents on the 1493-5 stick out by 9/16 where the 1499-5 sticks out by 1/16. I think I saw that Inland rv in corona might have the oem ones.

You can buy vents the same as used by Airstream, here is the discussion within Peter's 'The Story of the Airstream 310 Jacket' thread

I have had a couple of these stored in the 310 for awhile now:

Seems like it will be a straightforward job of hacking and drilling in the appropriate location, will post when I get the courage for that.
