SWB Dash Vents Finish Question

Postby mechaniker » Sun Jan 29, 2017 11:49 am

Hello all together,

the original Dash Vents had cracks for a long time and now was the time to rplace them. I just bought new ones from GTO Engineering ( http://www.gtoengineering.com/products/dash-vents-nt00010n ).

The original ones have a glossy finish and the new ones are stain. What is the correct finish?

Thanks in advance

The originals are in fact glossier, but you can buff the repros with a high sped flannel wheel. Do not use any rouge or a coarser wheel, it will mar or melt the plastic.
