        This about your vent hood. How much did the sheet metal shop charge you for fabrication, does it meet the codes, and what guage stainless is it.
        Nice Job your doing.

              I got them from a local A/C supply company. Mine are Fantech 10" fans. Google that, they are about $100.00 each.
              I built the trim on the outside to keep the air from trying to open them going down the road and hopefully keep the rain out..

                  What did you use to seal the framed concession window?

                      I've been debating what to seal my concession window with.  One of the engineers at my work recommended putting Butyl tape around the opening on the truck then install the window.

                        Well after completeing the truck and my wife being unemployed for 16 month, she got a good job. I stuck it up on Craigslist and sold it. I've got some local truck owners who have seen it now wanting me to build their next trucks. We'll see how many of them come up with a deposit to get them started and back to working nights and weekends to make some extra cash. The great thing to come out of this is I will pay off my house with the proceeds from the truck, 8 years early...
