We tossed the A/C belt somewhere along the way.. the people in the back seat hated us opening the windows.. but below the windshield it had these vents that popped open.. they had screens in them to catch any debris..

yeah the screens Worked when we hit that mob of bugs.. some kind of bees or flies.. the screens caught the BUGS but the 2 of us in the front seat got our faces sprayed with bug GUTS!!

the next town we found we hit the Local truck stop then Napa to buy a socket set and an A/C belt!!

With 4 big round holes already there...the fauxaldiyraygunmailboxsewervent...didn't need to be built

kind of looks like a humming bird feeder or old Motorola player, depending on paint choice, why OP? is it just a code when you where bored?

If not I apologize and add that would get you pulled over in a lot of locales

I'm not much of a fan of what you have here for all the reasons others have mentioned. I can't tell from your avatar, but you should have a fresh air supply on your bus controlled by a knob by the driver. The exterior vent for that is here circled in red

If you don't have that, I would think you should still have some sort of external air source to come out of the vents.

what is illegal or unlawful about the air vent? is unconventional against the law or codes? provide evidence and not opinion.

fresh air opening is flat, on the side, by small louvers in a no pressure zone and provides near zero airflow. when boundary layer air adhesion is lost the flow becomes negative. the air scoop survived a 280 mile trip without movement as configured so the detractors would have followed from driveway to driveway without event.
just sayin..........

yea everybody missed the 6" screw band clamp on the front near the register box sheet metal. but yet they trust pressurized air oil and water to the same screw band clamps. very "dual minded" imo.

no one was trying to offend you. it just plain physics, you have a bunch of plastic and sheet metal bailing wired to the windy roof of a school bus traveling fast. pipe clamp or not man that just not safe. i can pull a sheet metal screw out so i know the wind can. i think if you just put a plumbing sweep out any of the windows on side of bus you would have same result with half the risk of hurting someone. besides its the people behind you that you are putting in harms way, not you, doesn't that worry you?? and you really dont think the police are going to pull you over for it??
all the air oil and water that is clamped is to the frame or thick steel and WAY out of the wind, or path in which something, anything, can hit it or damage it. like i said , think of the people behind you on the road.

by the way i liked the ingenuity of it and just suggested safer materials.
