    Re: Fan specialist needed

    Judging by the aforementioned drawbacks of sleeve bearings, it might be modern enough.

    The fans are supposed to draw out hot air through the cracked sunroof. There may well be better ways of doing this (eg the way VAG vehicles do it where the panel powers the a/c), but it will be more complicated to implement (and here I thought swapping out the fans would be easy).
    Centrifugal fans fit a very specific use case/placement (in my mind), whereas axial can generally fit and work in most places. Seat ventilation (definitely the older systems) was axial, from memory (Got a kit for that as well, but it's more integrated with the car so I'm leaving it well alone)

    Re: Fan specialist needed

    Sorry for the delay - Matey finally got back to me, but unfortunately he's not in a position to take on anything new right now. The lifting of lockdown restrictions has gotten more people trying to go out and finding that their cars have deteriorated after being sat unused, so his workload has seen a massive spike and all his staff are fully booked for weeks ahead.

    However, he may get a slot or have some free time later on, so I'll PM you his number.

    Thanks Zak33, promise I won't message people about crypto giveaways by Musk.
    TTaskmaster, cheers, that's what I've heard from other mechanics - will message him later. Before I do, did he indicate whether the project made sense to him at all?

    I believe he understands the basics of what you want... at least as much as I've been able to explain it. Your photos on the other forum were more useful.
    He has a passing awareness of the product and can certainly see why manufacturers dropped such things.

    However, he thinks that kind of electrickery will be of more interest to one of his staff than him personally. Have a chat, maybe go meet up and see - It's only a local hop, so even if he says no, you only spend a quid on fuel and still get out of the house for a bit.
