There is a guy on Facebook selling really nice repop side vents looks exactly like the originals. I bought a set and the quality is excellent.


He also sells them on eBay but I think he charges less through Facebook.
Enjoy The Ride!

I seen those but prefer to not have the whole center section black. It's a good backup though.

Anyone know where to get the white push in pieces to screw into?

When I was building my brother car, the local auto body supply had a help type stant with all kinds of trim screw and snap items. And low and behold there were the exact size square nylon push in clips to screw right into. It was something like 3.99 for a package of 10. Sorry no part number, but if they are in my little town of Maple Ridge, then they are other there apparently.
Hope it helps.

Love people and use things,
because the opposite never works.

Hopefully the two guys that said they had sets will come back and check their PM's sometime soon 🤣😂

If not I'll be forced to buy knockoffs which I want to avoid
