What setting on the tig?? or did you gas it together?
We used an .062 Aluminum so that we could weld it. We are still playing with the tig setting to minimize warping.

Covering two vents

Depending on how your original vents were positioned, and if you still need two vents or are just trying to cover a hole (see attached picture), you may be able to do what I did and cover both holes with a large base plate. If we come up with a price that works for you (we are still working on it!), we would just need the dimensions for the base plate.

I too would be interested in your vent for my '59 Tradewind. Let me know when you come up with a price.

Thanks

Great looking vent. I would also like to be put on the list. That vent would look great on the 60 Caravel.

Hi Jim...Sorry for the delays. The first prototype was terribly time consuming and we have been working on some ways to cut costs. It looks like no matter how we do it, these things aren't going to be cheap, but it sure looks nice! The rest of the trailer project has been eating up my time as well. Hopefully the renewed interest will inspire me to get it to the finish line! Thanks for your interest.

FLYNCLD - Your trailer project is more important to finish, so take your time. I'm being so generous hoping that the time needed to finish your trailer may be enough good ole cogitation time to figger out how to produce the roof vents more affordably !! But your are SOOO right - your prototype does look way cool .
Jim

Cld - I hate to keep bothering you, but I really do like your vents!!! Any progress on reducing production costs & thus maybe you might have some idea what you'd need to ask for them? I need 2!!

Jim, I emailed Steve at VTS about them and he said they had the prototype done and were hoping to have them available this winter.

cheers,
steve
