12-12-2004 - The blower in the standard heater for the Van doesn't do a very good job. Newer Mini's have a plastic housing with a blower with two fans. It does a better job, but doesn't look as good as the metal housing. So the plan was to modify the metal housing so it could contain the blower with two fans.

Here you see the metal housing, extended on the left to create the second air intake. You can also see that even the parts inside the Van are far from rust-free.
