I don't think paint roller trays are OEM for vent doors.

The one on my '67 Trade Wind is solid and the vent is through the floor.

There is a 1968 Sovereign being offered for parts in the classifieds. You might be able to get a replacement there.

That access door should be 11.75" X 13.75"

Tat's so you can get at the burner, which is at the bottom, as well as remove the spiral that's in the chimney, from the top. Those 2 are in the "clean" picture.
