Wing vents
« on: October 06, 2023, 15:33:31 »
Hi there ladies and gents.

Might anyone know a suitable supplier of AC style wing vents.

Ideally in bare aluminium (rather than stainless) or possibly in fibre glass. Either to be assembled from the inside, or with a flange to be fitted from the outside. See pic.

There seem to be some from Cobra replica sites, but they tend to be stainless. I could fabricate some myself, which would look hand made and period, but I'm due to deliver the car for paint in a week's time.

Any help or opinion gladly received.

Thanks James

Hi James
AH Spares keep Austin Healey ones in stock which they manufacture in house, so might be worth a call to see if they could make some in the design you are looking for and in your time frame.
Details  below.

Hope this is of help.
Regards.

Thanks Nick, good idea, I made some enquiries and think I've found some that might work.
