Now that is My Kind of BLING! They Look great, now all you need are the right sized, black anodized countersunk screws to go with them. I don't think I can get away with ordering a set right now, are you planning to do another run in the future?

Tons. I made 40 black and only 10 clear because everybody was interested in black. I shipped all orders I got before noon on Friday. They should start arriving tuesday to the west coast. Be sure to post up what you think!

i have noticed that you take the pictures with the vents just sitting on top of the wingtop protectors...for the 90's with those protectors, will the new vents fit in place ??

I made them the exact same outside demensions of the stock vents only .040 thicker. The wingtops I have came with my truck and I don't think they are the normal NAS. If the stock ones fit, these should.

Here is a picture with a stock vent next to the Al one and a picture with the AL on stackon on top of the other one.

Follow-up Post:

I assume they will fit under the wing top protector (rough measurement), but I wouldn't. These things really are very pretty, it would be a shame to cover them up.

my wingtops have cu-outs for both vents .. so they should still be visible...i love the idea of replacing the plastic..these are a great item and i plan on purchasing for sure i was just making sure that i could put them on the 90 and still be able to fit the protectors as well and it seems i should be able to

Bling, Bling, Bling.......Hello?

It's BACON!!!

Damn! These things are sweet! Even beefier than I thought they would be. These things will never fail. Can't decide if I like the black or the clear better. Sorry, no pic's, camera issues.

David, these are the most practical, yet atractive, addition. You've outdone yourself!

Thanks,

Rod

Got mine yesterday. It was nice to remove the cracked plastic unit and replace it with that!

Thanks much!

Got mine today. Look great and are definitely beefy (but scratch easily). The only thing I'd do differently is make a recessed area on the underside around the mounting holes. The eixisting clips the screws screw into raise the vent up a little since it's flat on the bottom.

got mine and they are on !!! sooooooo sick omg
i luv them !! everyone with a defender should get em because it opens up the drivers side vent to let air through unlike stock and makes the vents way more attractive, and actually compliment the car so nicely and easily... buck you have outdone yourself
will post pics in like half hour

and yes Ade only one side has holes other is shut (how lame is that !?!?)
didnt have a problem with the even-ness of the vents they fit perfectly
