Ventilation screen on Glairshield

Recommended Posts

I'm having Aerocomfort rebuild the glairshield from my 1984 M20J.  He contacted me on Friday stating my glairshield has a "ventilation screen" on the top about 3 x 5 inches which is "not standard".  He wants to know if I want to keep the screen or if he can cover it with the fabric he is using to cover the rest of the glairshield.  Does anyone else have this screen and is it necessary?  See photo attached.  Thanks.   Glen

I'm thinking ventilation screens were added when radios were more prone to overheating issues.  I believe newer equipment is less susceptible to overheating.  Unless I find out otherwise, the screen will be history!

Looks like it is an add on...

Next steps...

Determine why they added that on?

Then decide if that reason still exists...

Got a pic of what is under there?  From the top and from the front...

Best regards,
