Is double sided tape all that keeps these vents attached to the fender? How does that hold up? I am really wanting to do this, but am skeptical about the cutting...My dad would KILL me if I screwed up my car

Just a noob asking here, but you wouldnt want to cover the whole area with something while you cut/grind? Seems like sparks could melt or embed in the clear coat.

that is a good question, he only covered about 1 inch around. the first one i cut i used a die grinder and it created tons of sparks, so i taped about 3 inches around. the other side i used a air reciprocating saw and made very little sparks

I just installed mine (DIY). They were a Christmas present from my wife.

Took me a total of 3 hours. I did everything as laid out in previous posts except I tired using my Dremel with a metal cutting bit. It sucked so I rented a die grinder for $15.00.

Just found a set painted black new off eBay for $130 shipped! Can't wait to get them in and installed. I plan on painting the mesh blue to match my stripes. FINALLY! Been wanting these since I got my car a year ago! I also might put some lighting in there if I can find somewhere to run the wire. The ideas are flowing!

I will definitely be following this guide, thanks for putting it together Lupe.

Put lights behind mine... Just a little subtle glow for shows... There are spots to run the wiring so that you can't see them You will find a spot when you have the inner fender out.

Thank you for sharing that about the Dremel! That's what I was going to try.

Could you paste a link?

Lupe were they copycat or someone selling a legit version? Surprised that someone wouldn't have put them in the marketplace here. Great price!!

Wish you would have done a DIY on that light wiring.

Here are the ones I did back in Nov. Hardest part was getting the courage to cut into my car lol (a beer and a few cigarettes). After the first cut it was very easy. Also added blue lights behind mine. I used my dremel with the dremel ez lock cutting wheels. It took about 10 wheels to do the whole car.
