Chrome Seat vents - set of 4 (Preferably Metal)
« on: August 13, 2020, 01:29:07 »
Hi, I am looking for a "driver quality" set of Chrome seat vents for the back of my seats (4 in total). Seems to be a lot of high priced repros out there. Vintage Euro Parts did sell a cheaper version (I assume plastic) but they are out of stock. Looking for a decent second-hand set at a reasonable price. Preferably the metal ones that were found on 230SL’s and 250SL’s. Thanks. Rob

I thought they were plastic on the 280SL and chrome on the 230SL

Thanks Mike, I’ve seen worse prices.

I think l have convinced myself to go with the metal ( finer mesh ) type that was original to the car ( 250SL).

Cheers

Rob
