It's aluminum mesh. are you missing the whole thing or just the mesh part?
The photos show how it's formed at the corners, cut from a single piece, and bent to shape. There are tabs left on the back side that fit into slots in the sheet aluminum and are then bent over to secure it in place.
This is from my '64 Safari.
Good luck to you!

Thank you for this documentation. I am missing the exact same piece! It looks like it can be easily fabricated, assuming the correct virgin material. This must have been an easy piece to lose.

Yes, please! I was hoping your drafting side might offer this up! Not sure yet where or how it will get made, but this will be critical to getting it done. Much appreciated!

I'll get that to you tonight Tim.
You will make this yourself, in about twenty minutes, with a set of metal cutting shears. It's really simple, like cutting out a piece of paper.
Have a good day, Rich

Water heater shroud

The size of these may have changed some with different years and models of W H's. Check before you cut!
To form the final shape you can bend the radius' with a broom handle and some elbow grease, and the bottom fold is a sharp bend, use a framing square or a square edged piece of wood to make a 90 degree bend. then it's just a matter of getting the tabs into the slots, one of my favorite games!

This is just perfect. Thanks for taking the time to draw and measure it all out. I will start looking for the material right away. I think I will start with the hardware store. Thanks again!

Hi Scott

That is what I did....and it has worked over the last five years. This is the only photo of the furnace revent, but shows the new Suburban vent and the opening cut out of the back of shroud.

What you cannot see is a diverter wing inside of the shroud that help direct the vented exhaust two directions, and also protect the exterior metal from being damaged or discolored from the direct heat.
