Hardtop owners know how difficult it is to get screens for the Vanagon. Yes, you can purchase screens for the front windows, but it’s a hassle to install every time you might want to use them. We found this new take on using vents as screens. It looked cool at first, but when we tried it we found we didn’t get enough air flow in the van. We even reversed the vents so the air would theoretically flow in, but we had little success. Here is another take from James Tu. The only problem here is James is in Taiwan and his website is in Chinese. So, have a look at the pics and maybe you can figure out how he did it.
These vents are larger than the ones we used, but they still point outward. I wonder how much air comes in the van through these vents. He’s done a great job at making them look great, I just wonder how well they work.
