That's right, I got a free floor washing, kinda.
This is what I started with, in terms of hardware. I picked two up some time ago but never got around to installing them. Think found them in California or Nevada someplace but was well over a year ago... Perfection takes it's time, at least that's what I tell myself.
First let me preface this by saying there is a distinct quality and pecking order in terms of fans. There are two major manufacturers of these exhaust fans, MaxxAir and Fan-tastic. In my very limited experience the MaxxAir brand is far far superior and it's very noticeable during this installation. I didn't take pictures of both covers installation, just the easier one (MaxxAir). The other one was a royal pain as no foresight seemed to have been given to doing this type of thing by the manufacturer, while MaxxAir paid attention to the small details.
|Tools - Drill, Bits, screws (included)|
Just basic tools were needed as shown in the picture. Not pictured is a screwdriver.
|First hole drilled|
The basic jist of this is, at least on MaxxAir, is to remove the plugs, enlarge hole (optional), use screw and attach bracket to side of housing, put the bolt underneath, and do this for all four corners. This next picture shows one side fully done.
|In place and mounted|
Last step is to put the nuts on the bolts which hold it down. The bolt has a square bottom shank so that it doesn't turn when it's snugged in a little. This helps in that don't have to hold the bolt side.
Last note, I promise. For those who have gotten this far down, I haven't posted in awhile due to drawing back in on myself again. One of the reasons I started this (not the only reason) is to help sharpen my communication skills and not keeping everything to myself. It's working in some unexpected ways.
