Anybody but an enthusiast south of you. Your parts are more nifty, however. Some of us have to use a 2x4 for a brake...

Regardless, I second Top's remark. I will also get back at it as soon as I get the house dried in!

Fit Check

I did the final fit check, and it fit like a glove. My brother is coming over in the morning and we will shoot it on. Shoulder is doing fine but it was starting to get sore after shooting the sub-assembly together. I want to get these fans in as I am going to Guam on the 11th.

Whats the correct sealant to use on the PVC, I'm not sure that my tank sealant will stick to it. Gasket or no gasket?

Awesome, Kip.
I don't/wouldn't use the foam gasket. I use 3M 540 polyurethane sealant.

Can you gt it at the home centers or is it only available at an industrial supply. I didn't think the gasket was a good idea. They only cause leaks.

I have never seen it at the big box stores. If you need something ASAP, Lowe's carries 3M 5200, but only in white. With your nice flange, you could make that work without too much of the white sealant showing. I buy 3M 540 in gray by the case from the 3M store. Fastenal usually stocks it at its hub locations. Grainger may have it in stock in the big city too.

Hey Aerowood,
I've always followed your threads and admire your work. I hope this isn't a dumb question, but what is the reason for your framing design of the FF install?
Thanks

So that the flanges on the outsides are not bent down with the fantastic fans being flat and the Airstream being crowned. I think this will relieve the stress and prevent the outside mounting flanges from cracking. I also think I will get a better seal.

Hi, and it won't have a pool in the roof right behind the vent frame like mine does.
