The vents are from a F150 but used on other Ford products also. They are a little bigger, had to enlarge the holes. I got them because you can open/close them with your finger. And they work with the look of the gauges.
Very nice!So this is what it's like to polish a turd! A month of cutting, fitting, bonding, filling, sanding, sanding, sanding and more sanding.
Next step is to test fit and paint. I'm going to try a matte dark charcoal metallic finish.

...a matte dark charcoal metallic finish.
that will be really cool, it would be interesting to think what you could put there since you probably have wires all ready in the steering column to support the airr bag set up. maybe a red light to mark RPM limit or a green light for shift points, I wonder what the formula one cars have lighting up on their dash boardA reliable/retrofit airbag system would be really complex and expensive. I'm sure it's been done but outside of the scope of my project goals and skill.
I am planning on making a piece that takes the place of the airbag that looks a little more "period correct".
