I've decided against a collector box & thought it would be OK to just feed the blower into 2 outlets. These are some hanging clothes rail ends which will attach to the other side of the bracket, I'll need a couple of 'Y' fittings to split the 2 outlets into the 4 required feeds to the screen.
So my bits & pieces have turned up. For the hose I went for some plastic flexible hose that's used for ponds & water features. As I'm not using heat this should be OK & it's a lot cheaper than the proper VW stuff.
Unfortunately my "custom" outlets are designed to take a 25mm rail internally so the hose won't fit over them. I didn't have any 25mm tube kicking around to make some stubby adaptors, however I'd kept the original Y pieces from the Beetle. As 1 of them was cracked anyway & was of no real use, I thought I'd just cut off the small connector & use that as my adaptor...............
It's been quite a while & I could list loads of excuses if needed. Anyway I have been looking at getting this finally done & with the weather so good at the moment I rolled it outside in the fresh air.
It had gotten quite dusty so I gave it a quick wash. It hasn't been outside & had pictures taken since the windscreen was done. A few views of it aired up to almost full height:
