If you get a chance to open the cover and snap a picture it would be interesting to compare the interior.

I'm not sure where you are referring to exactly. I'm not up for opening the OBC cover while it's still under warranty. Can you discern the difference from a good picture of the outside of the cover?

Sure I will do that as soon as I can. Some life complications at present unfortunately. What would be best perhaps a template for the bracket?

Yes, a template to trace sounds great, but I'd be good to go with a dimensioned drawing. I get your meaning about lesser fans- I had a couple die from minor mist in the Karmann Eclectric motor bay..
