Replaced roof vent 80 Excella

I was fortunate to get two roof vent assemblies from a local 'streamer who had upgraded. Since my 80 had a cracked vent plastic, I thought it might be easier to replace the one that was off the trailer, learn how to disassemble the unit, then put the lid on my roof.
As it turns our the two vents look much the same but the lids have totally different mechanisms, and so I ended up repairing the lid off my roof anyway.
I was surprised how different they were. On bolts on while one slips over two rods and then screws to the edge. The bolt on was a breeze to remove.The other style, not so.
Here are some shots.

I couldn't get smoked or white lexan, so I went with clear. The vent has an inside liner pice also, and of course the light lens so you don't see outside.
