I will. I have never been to the big Carlyle show in PA. I'd kind of like to go at least once. So far, the only other lead I have on the last roof vent I need was painted with some possible corrosion in one spot. The guy sandblasted the paint off to show me there was no pitting, and guess what, there was. Very little, but as much as the parts I already have, which I don't really want to use. I'll decide by Tuesday if I want to order it for $65 or just use the new one I got from Eckler's and replace it in the future if I find another really nice OEM vent. I'll still have some paint left over and it's no big deal to change it out.
