After seeing the pic of the Buick vent swapped into Billy's gold Caprice, I wanted to try this on mine. I've been bored with the car lately so every little bit helps. Got these from Indy:

Obviously wasn't putting them in looking like that, so I cleaned them up/"restored" them... Cool

So anyway, that's what it looks like. The blue is a bit lighter but doesn't clash at all with the rest of the interior, and the chrome goes with the door handles.

I should probably make a build thread for this car chronicling stuff I've already done, so it gives me motivation to do more things with it. Laughing Think I'll do the cornering light harness and then the Caddy horns as the next "mods", but I have to fix a couple items before that.

Looking good! Been doing this mod since 2008, if anyone sees a grey interior rmw/rms grab them vents! Hard to come by!
LMAO @ weed comment. I showed my brother this in the 92 wagon and Made the same comment,......after I bought the wagon off him all I smelled in the car when the vents were blowin was grass. Suspect

Thanks guys-

Steve, the Vanillaroma trees smell awesome! But, I don't think those ones have emitted an odor since 2010. Laughing

I used that chrome tape they sell in the "let me ghetto-fab my 1997 Civic out/cover up the rot holes in my 1977-1992 Cadillac RWD back bumper" section of the parts store. It is techincally metal I believe kinda like the old school AAA bumper stickers, and if you do it carefully, it creates an unnoticable repair, like you "chromed" the plastic over again. You have to take care on what size to cut the slices of it and where to place it on the vents, it doesn't like to wrap corners. Smile
