Hi, tonight when we came home, I found some boxes on my porch. My vent covers are here. Now I have to figure out when I can install them. And no, they aren't going to be mounted on the Galaxie's truck lid.

Hi, well today was the day to install my vent covers. I spent the whole after noon on top of my trailer. I'm pretty particular about doing things to any of my vehicles that involves drilling. Think about it, look at it, measure everything, dry fit it, look at it and all of the parts again, measure and mark everything, and OMG start drilling. Now the front vent is a Fantastic Vent and the rear vent is just a plain Jane vent. On the front vent I found the center of the side at 8 1/2"s. The space between the brackets was 7 1/2"s. So from the center line I went 3 3/4"s each way. I lined up the brackets and taped them in place. Then I dry fitted the vent cover, marked the two holes per bracket, drilled and screwed them in place. On the street side there is a guide bumper that has to be removed for the bracket, but I was lucky that I could put it back in the same place after the bracket was mounted. On the Fantastic Vent, the mounting brackets use two little stainless steel screws that screw into the plastic housing. Now all of the measurements on the plain Jane rear vent are the same, but because the frame is metal, it takes only one screw each. These screws go in the slotted center hole and have a flat washer, a lock washer, and a nut to hold them in place. I decided that the brackets also needed a small flat washer on the outside as well. The rear vent sits lower and the brackets looked like they were not going to sit flat, so I used four of the vent mounting screws to help hold the brackets down. Two of the brackets didn't line up with the mounting screws so I drilled them to fit. I think I did a pretty good job installing them and they look pretty good too. As others have said, these vents do restrict some of the airflow from the power vent, but not enough to matter for us as we usually only use the slow fan speed anyway. [Note: the front vent cover is quite close to the front radio antenna and I'm not sure if the larger vent covers would clear it] [MAXXAIR Fan Mate]
