Next up (when the weather cools down) is to do the stereo with some sort of sub in back, either a small box or use the factory sub and trim panel I have sitting in the basement (or maybe both!)

How did you take your vents out?? I haven't been able to find any how-to's.
Your engine bay looks very complete with the brace and engine cover

If that's an overlay, don't think you would need to take the vents out to do it :shrug:

unless its a chrome vinyl, just by looking at the pictures they look like they would be 'new' vents entirely

It is the complete vent. With a plastic pry bar trim tool I just got part of it out the it just pulls straight out by hand. I got them at the junk yard and luckily was able to practice on another car first.

Just make sure your offset will be OK as well as the depth of the hub itself. If its too deep, you won't get your center caps on. I had mine done at Trudesign Wheel of Denver, CO for $40 per wheel.


Hi Rmmckenzie. How much deep for the center bore? I got this rims yesterday and i want to make it right. Thanks.
