    I have been told that venting panels (like what ct sells) does more for the heat then anything else. My turbo has never had a heat problem although I did the thermotech anyway. I also don't have a windshield or roof

    I didn't notice the heat until I put on a roof , windshield, and rear window... now that I did this it isn't nearly as bad it made a huge difference

    I think I am missing something. How do panels behind the headlights with holes help with heat in the cab?
    i am willing to do anything to help with it. Here in Texas when it’s 105 outside with 80% humidity I pretty much have to park my Mav because it’s just tooo hot Thinking of going redneck and mounting a generator on the rear and putting a window unit on the hood.

    Behind the headlights?? They are the panels on the inside of the wheel wells and are quite large and the factory one's don't allow air to flow past the engine and also trap heat that your fan pull's off your radiator.. making panels like I did allows air to flow through the engine area and out the back and doesn't trap hot air from your fan .I have noticed not only cooler cab temperature but also noticed that while driving at a faster speed ( more speed more air flow) the engine runs a bar cooler

    Ok my bad. About the behind headlights part. Those are the panels behind the radiator. So they let air out instead of forcing it into the cabin. Is the area behind the radiator open thru the firewall towards the engine? Seems that would have to be an opening for the radiator fan air to get to the engine compartment. Maybe I am thinking wrong and the holes in the panels you made are allowing cooler air in to join with the hot air coming off the radiator so it’s actually a cooler blast blowing across the engine. I am running a fan bypass switch and never have more than three bars even when it’s 100 outside One bar when it’s 60 outside

    I like it ! and I think it has as much to do with getting airflow around the exhaust as it does with the cooling system. The exhaust is what drives the heat in the cab. Gonna try to drill the factory ones to save a few bucks at first, add that to my ball joint fun this weekend.

    update: Just left this comment, then went to google "Can am Maverick vented inner fender" , and of course it lead me right back to the forum and this thread, sweet - this is gonna be my plan.

    Dsrtdog. Let us know how it all works. Would be nice to get a couple of people’s results. The link is awesome. Those are sweet looking with the painted screen in them. May have to do it just for the coolness. Let alone the cooling factor. Lol
