I'm looking to add a hood above the 2 burner stove- but I only have 4 inches from the bottom of the fiberglass shelves to the window.
Anyone know of anything that would fit? It can be 20" long across.
78' trillium

I just went to The Metal Supermarket,
and got a colored piece (I wanted Red)of Aluminum, and bent it myself to the shape I needed.
Then I airbrushed the Coca Cola name on the surface.
I put 2 hinges on it,
so it would flip upwards to the right(keeps it out of the way when your cooking).

Hope this helps.

Hummm, don't know. I've purchased stuff from CutsMetal before. I see the diamond plate is not only in silver, but red (two tints), black, and blue (two tints). Totally cool.

Ooooooooo, Donna, thank you for that link to CutsMetal! We've been wanting to add a "backsplash" behind the cooktop & sink counter to protect the rodent fuzz on the wall. Thinking, thinking ... L 'n D

Cyndi,
You might try a rectangular aluminum cake pan screwed upside down to your cabinet. One member here did that to their trailer (Casita I believe) and it looked great. It was painted to match the cabinets and blended in well.

For backsplash material available from Home Depot or Lowes types places, check this topic:

For the cake pan idea Eric posted, I'll look for the topic and post the results later... gotta go to work!

Hi Eric,
I think it may have been my range hood "mod" you're recalling. I didn't like the factory installed one. It just looked too big and clunky for this small of a galley area. I used a Wearever aluminum baking sheet (approx. 13" X 17"). I cut the back lip off so that it fit flush with the front face of the overhead cabinet, spray painted (primer and gloss white), drilled and riveted it in place, and sealed all the edges with white silicone sealant. I replaced the original vent fan (integral with the original range hood) with two 12 volt dc pancake computer fans. To wire the fans, I utilized the existing 12 volt wiring from the original light fixture of the original hood. The switch (right side of overhead cabinet) is just a simple on/off toggle switch. The fans work good and you can barely hear them when running. It really opened up the galley area considerably.

Now that is cool. I love simple solutions that use readily available materials in innovative ways, and you're right, you don't actually need a "hood" to pull stove top smoke out, just an airflow pattern that pulls the smoke toward the exhaust, and your hood looks like it would do the trick. [on edit: Egads! That is the worst run-on sentence I've posted in a long, long time!]

Your design also gives me an idea on a solution that will work both for our kitchen and Cindi's, both of which have windows over the stove that reduce the wall space for a hood. I'll draw it up and post it later today.

Thanks all for the kudos. I hope it works out well for you. It really was a pretty simple and straight-forward installation. By the way, I found that a composite cut-off wheel on my 3" air grinder worked really good for cutting the lip off the aluminum baking sheet. As to mounting the pancake fans, I used a chunk of that marine plastic sheet material (1/2" thick) that they sell under the name Starboard <sup>™</sup>. It's probably available at several places, but I bought it at West Marine. I drilled out two holes with a hole saw and mounted the fans inside the holes, (flush mounted,) as opposed to surface mounting them. I suppose either would work, but it just looked a little "cleaner" this way.

Greg
