Has anyone found a source for a replacement roof vent? I hear the stealers are pretty spendy ($200+ :eek:). I'm almost considering cutting the hole out to 14' X 14' to put a RV vent on just so I can get rid of that piece of Lexan I've got glued up there.
TIA

Sorry,
Stealers is the term we use for Harley dealers. Force of habit.

I've checked the boneyards around here and the vents are all missing or busted up.

The only part of mine that is left is the inside frame.

If your are going to customize one, go for an emergancy hatch out of an old school bus, that way you could climb out and sit on the roof.

There is one in a salvage yard in Ft. Laud. The hatch is ok and very reasonable. The only damage is to the front and the hood only has a wrinkle in the front that could be fixed.

George,
Are you coming up to the Florida meet @ Rodneys this weekend? Do you have any idea how much they're asking for the vent? I would prefer not to cut the roof because I know I'll never get it sealed correctly. The RV vents are and option. I think I can squeeze one in between the ribs in the roof. I've even considered getting a fiberglass hood scoop and mounting it backward. At least it'll extract some of the heat .
Maybe one of those big old Mopar snorkle scoops. One on the hood and another on the roof ;D

Try to fig it up like the electric vents on RVs so you can open it from the front seat with a switch.

I won't be there Sunday. I have no idea of the price for the vent but I had asked about the hatch and it was less than $50 with the glass.
I have a plastic vent made to go over the roof vent on RV's. I put it over my vent and hold it on with four fishing lines which connect to a bungie cord to hold it on. I don't drive with it on but I can leave the vent open as I always park in the sun.

Hmm.. Maybe something can be rigged up with a vent window motor from a Caravan?

Could use one like the old Ford Explorers had...it blows off while you drive down the road!{bigeyes}
They had to recall these, but I guess they have recalled just about everything they build. ;D

I was surprised to see this thread pop back up. I did end up finding one from a member. I got a good deal as well. When I was installing it I considered putting it in backwards to drag air in while moving. I figured I would end up ripping it off when I'm doing 180 down the back straight at Daytona. ;)
