Glad this thread was just revived. I finished installing a new Fantastic fan yesterday and was just about to add the Hehr lid to the ever growing pile of original but replaced parts in the old barn when I saw this. I may have to rethink using the aluminum lid vs. the gray transparent lid I have for the Fantastic fan. I too am interested in how bjond made the remodel.
Helps?

The article was in a past Vintage Advantage, if you don't have a copy and are a VAC member, email Tim K for the article.

I went out to take a picture of my vent and noticed a corner high. The glue is not bonding to the aluminum. I used Gorilla glue.

I am now more interested in how you are doing it.

You take the original and drill out the rivets, separating the two pieces, and then sandwich the plastic cover in between, either riveting or machine screws to put it back together. If I remember correctly, the inside piece has to be modded just a bit for the lifting hardware. Easy project.

My hope was to not poke any holes in the FF lid. Holes leak.

I looked at it more. My FF lid is not flat but rises ever so slight to a peak in the center.

The hinge is held on to the lid by 4 rivets. The lifting bracket is screwed into tabs molded into the lid. I think I may drill the 4 rivets out for the hinge, and fabricate two tabs for the bracket that I can mount to the inner panel of the original vent lid and mount the hinge directly to the original vent lid.

I got a couple more days in this holiday weekend to give it a try.

2....I used Citrus Strip. It took three applications and 3M pads to scrub clean'
3....this is the original vent.
4....just to remind you of planning for the future

Got it done

It could have been done sooner ....but, I had to be sure the Vulkem, used to old the lid to the Fan, was cured. The only hic up was the attach screw hole on the hinge side. The lid is "almost" in the way of drilling and screwing tight.

How is the old lid connected to the FF lid? Are the clamps for glue?
