Fitted the roof vent

I fitted the roof vent today. That should keep the van pleasant when it's got sweaty, breathing bodies inside it, and should mean that the van doesn't get damp and nasty inside when standing around. That's important to prevent rust and rot! I'm fitting a Fletter 2000 spinning vent, which I've trimmed down slightly to fit between the narrow ribs on the roof of the Mazda.

Pilot holes drilled in the roof
The vent needs a central air hole and four fixing holes: these are the pilot holes drilled through the roof between the ribs. I've marked them from the vent body and just drilled straight up through the foam headlining into the sky.
Rough cut
Go mad with a jigsaw and a metal blade: sawing holes in the roof of your van is scarily easy and rather good fun. Look Ma, I can see clouds and birdies! This hacked hexagon will let me offer up the top part of the vent assembly to get the body trimmed correctly.
Full cut and masking tape
I've offered up the vent body, marked the hole accurately, and cut more closely to that line with the jigsaw. Then I've tidied the burrs up with an angle grinder, and masked up the rough area for priming. The hole isn't perfect and isn't especially pretty but it doesn't have to be: the two halves of the vent sandwich the hole but there is no pipe.
Primer paint applied
A couple of coats of primer will prevent corrosion on this previously-bare metal. It ain't exactly art, but like the hole, it doesn't have to be.
Finished: top view
Job done: the top of the vent spins in the wind. Nice and tidy. The bit you can see rotates on a spindle which is boltedto the roof; the inside part is the other half of the sandwich.
Finished: inside view
Inside: the vent's grille is discrete and can be closed easily. It snap-fits over the inside part of the body, so can be removed - I'll probably take it off and paint it to coordinate with the interior when I dress the ceiling.

EGTY trading volume is beginning to surge with landslide Announcement.
The value of this Stoc,k appears poised for growth! This one will not

KEEP READING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


-Energy and Asset Technology, Inc. (EGTY) owns a global license to market
the genetically enhanced Global Cedar growth trees, with plans to
REVOLUTIONIZE the forest-timber industry.

These newly enhanced Globa| Cedar trees require only 9-12 years of growth before they can
be harvested for lumber, whereas worldwide growth time for lumber is 30-50 years.

Other than growing at an astonishing rate, the Global Cedar has a number of other benefits.
Its natural elements make it resistant to termites, and the lack of oils and sap found in the wood
make it resistant to forest fire, ensuring higher returns on investments.
he wood is very lightweight and strong, lighter than Poplar and over twice
as strong as Balsa, which makes it great for construction. It also has
the unique ability to regrow itself from the stump, minimizing the land and
time to replant and develop new root systems.

Based on current resources and agreements, EGTY projects revenues of $140 Million
with an approximate profit margin of 40% for each 9-year cycle. With anticipated
growth, EGTY is expected to challenge Deltic Timber Corp. during its initial 9-year cycle.

Deltic Timber Corp. currently trades at over $38.00 a share with about $153 Million in revenues.
As the reputation and demand for the Global Cedar tree continues to grow around the world
EGTY believes additional multi-million dollar agreements will be forthcoming. The Global Cedar nursery has produced
about 100,000 infant plants and is developing a production growth target of 250,000 infant plants per month.

Energy and Asset Technology is currently in negotiations with land and business owners in New Zealand,
Greece and Malaysia regarding the purchase of their popular and profitable fast growing infant tree plants.
Inquiries from the governments of Brazil and Ecuador are also being evaluated.


The examples above show the Awesome, Earning Potential of little
