    While ripping ragged misshapen holes in the paper-thin roof of my Transit with a step-drill, in order to run my solar wiring, I looked at the several existing holes that Ford left, only covered with what appears to be a sticker and thought "why don't I just use those?" Well, the little streamlined doohickey with the two glands at the back for the wiring won't fit in any of those places due to the uneven shape of the roof. My next thought was "I bet Hein could make an adapter for those spots to mate with the doohickey or better yet, an entire 3-D printed doohickey specific to the locations where the existing holes are." Not gonna help me, probably, but maybe the next guy can use the existing holes. I used the Renogy doohicky by the way and glued it on with Window Weld. https://www.amazon.com/Renogy-Housin.../dp/B01N04XAHC

    You should consider selling the "Winglet" roof vent from GC Systems.

    I think a huge 14" Maxxair or Fantastic is overkill in a small van. Emailed GC and they say the Winglet is rain proof. If I had known that vent was available that is what I would have installed.

    Have spent some time googling for a smaller vent and have not found one that works like a Maxxair.

    Hein,
    Just bought a Transit and want to utilize Thinsulate.
    To place an order for a high roof, extended long wheelbase Transit,
    How much of the thin Thinsulate and where to use it?

    Hi Hein,
    I'm going to install a single solar battery and found your sketch http://www.impact3d.com/Ford_Transit...ent_layout.pdf in one of posts. It's very similar to what I'm thinking about, but my panel will be little bit bigger, like close to 67x40in.
    I guess if I go this way, I will need four brackets, bolts and some 80/20 staff.
    Do you still sell brackets? If yes, how much would cost four of them?
    Thanks.

    Hey, I'm looking to save a few bucks...do you allow direct orders for your products to save the amazon/ebay commissions?

    Looking to pickup some thinsulate, the fan adapter and whatever else I can find.

    Thanks,
    Bruno
