Many style points for creative use of toilet flanges.

The lights are a classy touch.

That looks like a great idea for mounting and venting the A/C. But how will the water be kept out when you are driving down the road in the rain? The light cover cutouts look vulnerable to this.

Re: La Tortuga...update 05-26-13 (front ac install)

if that and to much air off front are an Issue I will put upside down "eyebrows" under the lights

I don't think it will be that much of an issue, with the 90* upturn and screen over holes...we shall see
