Does that make sense? They seemed to be cosmetic only in the location they would fit.
Yep, makes sense. From what I remember seeing in pictures of Bella is the inner arch / floor area was done the way the 77 and later coaches were configured. Which is to say the floor runs all the way to the outer wall.
On mine the floor ends at the inner wall and the inner wall space is actually open from below all the way up to the bottom of the window frame. I'll have to check to see if that makes a difference in the placement of the vents.
Thanks for the info.
