Dunner,
Nice work and I'm glad it worked for you. Thanks for posting the pictures.

Thanks everybody. It was a fun project, especially when the bits and pieces just fell together and I had almost all of them at home. I thought about going to HD or Lowe's for some reducers, but once I started to trial fit what I already had, everything fit snug enough to work.

2Labs

With the long run to the front vent, and going through the basement, it probably looses a lot of heat getting there. I see ~20 difference at the vent below the fridge than the new ones I installed. I'll keep in mind the Reflectix for the seat bases and under the dash.

I have factory carpet firewall to back wall, including the area at the entranceway and added carpet tiles at my entryway steps. Sadie climbs under a blanket next to me or on the couch.

That's a good idea to re-direct the front vent heat for Brody. Sadie climbs under a blanket next to me or on the couch. You have 2Labs? LOL.

I like to think the carpet keeps my feet warmer than tile would. That beige color tends to get dirty easier, so I keep a can of "Resolve" handy for spills.

SC, I also like to think National put the heat vent by the door so it would warm incoming air... like they do at entrances to buildings in the summer.

Thx. I didn't think I was going to be able to find a 2" round vent. Lowe's also had a 2x10" rectangular vent, but I would have had to fabricate some type of reducer to for it.
