Panelray heater

If you own a Panelray heater, long tube type, from a 1950's Airstream, could you post a couple of pictures of the inside, with cover removed.
I am putting mine back together and it looks like it is missing a piece at the top.I am only guess I may be missing a piece based off the water rust line and two screw holes. But so far I found a lot of screw holes that went to nothing. As well I can't tell how many vents it had going thru the roof. I have one, but it's to small. I would think there would be two. One fitting around the small oval exhaust outlet, and then a larger one around that one that. See picture. This picture is looking from the top.

Everthing turned out great. Furnace runs without a hitch and puts out a ton of heat. Just took the whole thing down to a friend of mine's shop and he will aluminum coat it, and he will also make two new vent stacks as well for me. This thing will look brand new and will put out even more heat after it's been recoated. Love having a heater system that does not use one drop of power!
