Don't mind the look of the vents



What would be involved in doing this? Cutting out a hole to fit the vent then just slotting it in?
Probably be a paid job, wouldn't want to f**k that up

Oh right, so the vents would more than likely have the insert similar size to the hole left by the indicator? Ill look into it Smile

^^

You would need to widen the hole to fit. You could probably get away with doing it at home with a hacksaw or something similar once you had the part you wanted to fit.
I don't mind the side indicators, but figure if you get the mirrors with the indicators in them then the front quarter panel ones are redundant and could probably be removed. Would make way for nice vents!

If you don't have side mirror indicators, then Aussie law says you could get pinged if you took the panel indicators out. (you need 1x indicator on the side of the vehicle)

I really dont want to copy the dudes styling, but I like it haha.

If you were to cut out the holes larger how would you do it without chipping and flaking/cracking paint off everywhere? I can just imagine cutting and the area around it turning to sht

few ways to cut holes in guards......normally the flutes/vents are bigger then the hole you need to fit so they do cover fk ups abit
use a hydraulic hole punch
mask it up cut with a small thin cut off wheel you could heat up the paint work too that will help with paint chipping abit
or get a pro to do it
