Vent cover install
 
Installing a vent cover on my '63 Ambassador, any advice? Is it possible to install without taking off exciting hardware? Thanks for any help!

Your vent operators simply pop off the brackets.

Then, and only then, can you mount them correctly to new covers.

If the new covers are plastic, use soft rivets and a little sealer on the outside on top of the rivets.

Also, make careful measurements, before drilling holes.

Make sure you drill the holes, if the covers are plastic, VERY SLOWLY.

Thanks for the advice Andy. I received the vent from Inland, are the aluminum rivets and washers supplied correct for install?

Yes, those are the correct rivets and washers.

There are 2 things we do not supply with our covers.

1. The labor.

2. The beer.:cool:

Those are 2 things I can handle!
1. I'm a hard worker

2. I always supply enough beer

Thanks Andy!
