    Hello Group,

    If you're tired of looking at the ugly foam show through on your dash, read on!

    Over the past 9 months I've developed a new design for the dashboard defrost vents. Their purpose is to cover the unsightly and typical foam show through that occurs with shrinkage of the dashboard leather (see image).

    I have 4 of these vents out for testing and am testing a set myself. They look factory original and are performing quite well. They are very beautiful!

    I will be producing a batch of 20 sets. They will be sold for $350 per set (driver and passenger side). If you are interested in getting a set, please email me at blvendittelli@gmail.com

    Have a look at the attached video that shows the issue with the original vents, the newly designed vents and their installation.



    If that unsightly dash lessens your driving experience, these may solve your problem and make you much happier.

    Thanks!

    I was one of Bruno's prototype testers and i can confirm this addresses a real problem in an innovative way.

    strongly recommended and looking forward to my production set!

    Can you prototype this for the F430 Vents? They are forward but the leather shrinks away from them too.
    Great video and product.

    Hi Snapshift. I don't have any plans to do this for an F430. I did this as the vents were really bothering me on my own 360.
