I bought a set of these a few years ago and they are wonderful. However, if they are like mine, you should expect to have to spend some significant time cleaning up machining marks etc before sending them out to paint. If you do that, they will be undetectable from the cheesy plastic vents they replace.Thanks for all the advice everyone. I just punched an order for both the side and top vents. I connected with Rich Brooks about having them painted to match. So once I receive them, I will send the top vents his way for that procedure. I’ll update everyone when it’s all done.
