Intake of breath!

Postby Molly Man » 28 Jan 2009, 10:57

Have been watching auction of T25 rear vent air scoops on fleabay... they look pretty smart and could do the job... anybody fitted them? and where else can you buy them from?... have googled but no joy so far... I wait with baited breath! :shock:

Thanks Peps... but those were the poncy ones that Rob linked earlier ...the scoops on fleabay seem to use the existing slatted vents (I think)... :D

Both look nice. :ok
Personally I would like some that keep water from dripping into engine bay when parked up. The 115 yoyo ones might,but the ebay ones I'm not sure of.
Did you ask selling for more details / info on install?

I saw a writeup somewhere of some home brew ones made from wash tubs or something similar. I'll see if I can find it.

you mean these?

they vary in price watched them a few times now!

i made my own(very basic 1st attempt) when i took the van to italy as i had not seen any advertised as i was a bit unsure of how the van would cope in the hot weather. they seemed to do the trick as everytime i stopped i checked the air convecting from the vents and alot of the time it was cool!
