vibration dampening fan grommets

Using a 1/4" size drill bit to make the mounting holes, this allows the fan grommets to fit.

I use #10 x 5/8" Black Oxide Phillips Pan Head screws for mounting fans

I really like the F-150 pick-up from District 9

For the exhaust fan grill, I cannibalized an early Monsta Rad grill prototype we made this year.

I've cut the window from Lexan. It's tougher than plexiglass/acrylic, but 2 or 3 times more expensive. It won't shatter or crack "easily" You can buy Lexan sheets at Home Depot, Lowes and some hardware stores like Ace.

The window will be fastened with 1/4" socket head screws, for reinforced armour look

Using center punch to mark each fastener hole.

The benefit of using Lexan is that you can drill or hand punch it without cracking it.

Clean hole cut! I love Lexan.

Ironically our concept drawing calls for bullet holes in the Lexan "bullet proof" window...lol
