A light coat of resin would take care of that and the aged plastic could not be much worse! Just my thoughts.

Yes I said that! Or did I?

Andy, sparks, really? That's funny, please explain that. I have seen this type of vent on many AS's. As far as I know the burner is enclosed in a metal shroud and has an internal chimney around the heat exchange. How would there be any sparks? I only have a 3-way refer, propain, 110v ac, 12v dc. If I burned sticks I might believe there could be sparks. This is just a vent for the gas fumes to escape. Granted the fumes are warm/hot, but no where near hot enough for wood combustion 572 degrees Fahrenheit.

Take the cover off of the burner on an older reefer, and watch the sparks. A lot of them, no. But some, yes.

Safety can never be over practiced.

Batman that is VERY nice!
No paint for me. I will leave it exposed aluminum.
Not sure of finish yet though.

If anyone is concerned with the safty issue that Andy brought up. Just cut a piece of aluminum for each of the inside walls and screw them to the wood insides. Wango dango, spark proof. Hope this helps.
