Naca Vents

I decided to fit submerged Naca air intakes in place of the air scoops for the interior ventilation. I made a mould out of wood after calculating the shape from a formula, according to the overall dimensions required.

Things have moved on since this post. Vic now makes a specific vent to fit the footwells out of fibreglass which SCAT hose attaches to. These then go up to the panel with some eyeball vents.

I fitted them to mine with the parts supplied by Vic.

Thanks for the info and the photo. I took a look at the NACA vents on Vic's website but I didnt see the eyeball vents. Where did you get them? They look really sharp.

Vic did supply the eyeball vents, but they were just some he had around. He doesn't supply them as standard. You can get eyeball vents pretty much anywhere. Aircraftspruce do them and Parst4Aircraft have a couple of different ones as well.

I can supply a variety of installation solutions. A common option is foot well naca vents with a small tube extension with eyeball vent. I make and supply to your requirements including the eyeball.
