Hi, I was driving a survivor I just got a couple months ago (my 1st van!!!) on the freeway for the 1st time after new brake booster, master cylinder, brakes & tires to test her out and the original vent scoop broke.
Any ideas for a replacement? I like the old look, so was thinking of getting a modern replacement & maybe having a body guy custom make a fiberglass housing over it. Idk. Have any of you had to do this before?
Also, don't throw those parts away. You can sell them to people who want parts for spares. Just advertise them as "Venturi Vent Parts" when you do sell them.
And Charlie will be by to pick them up ... lol
Hey, it is a total bear to find these original parts. Even the hardware is scarce. I always buy doubles so I have something for a replacement when I'm done. When I do my second van, I'll go tempered glass ports and an extra sunroof!
You hear the thunder of stampeding rhinos, elephants and tacky tigers This town ain't big enough for the both of us And it ain't me who's gonna leave
You go Charlie! When the time comes; and it will: " Mad Maxx ; Thunder Dome ; The Walking Dead " etc etc... You will Always Be Welcome at Camp Mickey; up in the Hills Of North East County: One way in and One way out.
Water ; Food; Gasoline ; Guns & Plenty of Amo ! What more could you want. Your name will be at the Gates.
Or you can go old school look with modern conveniences. I put one of these in my Ram Promaster van. It's nice to be able to control it from the driver seat, open and close, draw in or blow out air, change fan speeds, built-in rain sensor. https://www.amazon.com/Fan-Tastic-Vent-807350-Series-Vent-White/dp/B00HQZASRW/ref=sr_1_38?adgrpid=1341404751213546&dchild=1&hvadid=83837868141972&hvbmt=be&hvdev=c&hvlocphy=74184&hvnetw=o&hvqmt=e&hvtargid=kwd-83838144904892%3Aloc-190&hydadcr=8427_10833444&keywords=max+air+fan&qid=1614964169&sr=8-38
