Installed Fender Vents by 3D Carbon and BilletAnything

Well Sweetness went back under the knife (die grinder). I installed these vents super easy. So easy a girl (daughter) can do it. i got the vents from BilletAnything, great folks to work with. they come with everything but the grinder. lucky i had one. template is perfect, no guess work, cut, clean, apply adhesive promoter, and set. done. 3 hrs total.
see the DIY here http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=164199

BilletAnything http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=145450

That's unique! It looks great! Are you planning on adding real vents to the rear quarter as well?

My mom used to hire us kids out to the neighbors for different jobs at $2/hour. Do you hire your daughter out to do this job? I might be able to spring for $5/hour.

Those look very nice!

Sorry to comment on an old thread, but i am so close to finally ordering these, but wanted to do some last minute research to finalize my decision. So after having these for a while are they still holding up well? any opinions, pros or cons? Thanks!

Got to thank Lupe for bringing this to the forum and his daughter doing the install.
I ordered mine a while back after seeing his initial post and I got them painted when ordered and did the cutting on this past Thursday and prepped the metal after the cutting and installed my LEDs inside the fenders which are operated by my wireless remote box with a fob. I think they look good and at night, a nice warm, red glowing emitting from behind the screens. Love it!

I love how the 3D vents look, in fact I like them so much I had them installed. No way was I going to try to do it myself, I just don't have the confidence that I wouldn't screw something up. The body shop that did the work painted the vents and did the install, they do good work and did a perfect job on my vents.

Any thoughts to paint the screen part of the vent another color? I seen a Camaro the same color as the OP where the screen was painted the same as the car. Not sure if I like it or not. I have gold hockey stripes so I was considering painting the screens gold.

I think the painting of the screens should have been done prior to the install but I'm sure one could mask it up and do it though overspray would shoot through. I guess the question is, what if your LEDs go out or you really need to get in there for something, maybe to change lights, add or whatever, how you gonna remove the vents fairly easy without damage or buckling the fenders, hmmmmmmmm?

turn tire, remove fender liner and you can get back there pretty easy

Good to know! I will be replacing my LEDs soon with some AAC pods. Was stressing that.
