Re:Side Vent fan installation ...
no no no I don't use grinders for that reason. LOL Every tool i've used on that hood has jumped out of my hands at least twice. I'm going to measure the blades, but I'm almost positive that they are about 6" total width. Where I cut I took out part of a stud ( not load bearing ) but if I go any further to the right I will take it fully out. If anything I will use a saw-zall on it and widen it by two inches. I'm sure I can find a small piece of square duct work somewhere. I have the air louvers already. came with the fan, I just haven't had time to install them b/c it got dark on me. Gonna need a ladder for that one and it's supposed to rain/snow here tomorrow, but I've built in worse weather. Maybe I'll clean out the truck and get it ready. The one thing I don't like is my gas line to the grill. It's in a weird place and it's the only place I could put it. b/c of the GIANT freakin fuel line. This thing has to be 4" wide. I'll have to shoot some pics of the inside tomorrow.
