whose got what?????????????

I have been studying these critters for a while and finding it really hard to find the actual dimensions of what people are selling.
They all give a length and some give a width, even screw whole centres.
But no one seem s to give the internal hole dimensions. surely you need this to match up with your vents underneath your bodywork.

Anyone got the Europa ones (pictured) and be willing to measure them for me.

Or anything different that looks nice. Please post a pic of what ya got as I'm really gettin a bit lost. My vents will be approx 185mm long.:(

Nobody in that number got a cobra or prepared to have a quick measure up let alone take a quick snap.

Please take a look at your cobras and tell me what ya got. if you can remember without popping in the garage, I'll settle for a guess.

Dave m8, had a look at mine and discounted posting on the grounds of not being pretty! If you require anymore info, please let me know.

Here you go, a pic:

You should know me by now, I never have, and never will discriminate anyones car.
All of 'em are nice in my eyes, all got something to offer.
Thanks for the pic. I have no idea why no-one actually posted a pic or just words of what they got. Maybe I'm in the bad books, I'll sit on the naughty step and wait to see if anyone posts.
Thanks again m8

Off the naughty step.
Mine are a GD supplied item - just flat polished stainless steel.
I`m going down the garage soon, so will take a pic and measurements if it helps.

30 cm steel rule for a guide, hope this helps.

Bloody hell Guy
THATS MUCH MORE THAN I EXPECTED FROM ANYONE.

Brilliant thank you.

The measurement I'm actually most interested in is the hole width.

Thanks Paul I'll try and find GD on line.

Hi Dave. mine are Dax items from yesteryear I think. No holes in the vent plate. Just two studs that go through the body and marry up with the vent fitting on the underside.
I suppose this is the type of fitting you aren't looking for.;) If you would like some dimensions and pics, shout now! I'll be in the garage in a bit so I will be able to accommodate your requirements.:cool:

Car Builder Solutions sell an escutcheon like Paul's #ALIVNT6 320mm x 39mm with a slot 290mm x 10mm. No fixing holes drilled @ 6 + vat ea.

Sounds like 'Gonch' is your option at the mo Dave. Previous post to yours.

A PM may be?

Not replied to this so far because........ You need to select your desired escution and tailor the slot so it's hidden beneath it. ;)

Just another fettle required.

Original cars actually have three slots in a row and not a continuous one. This is what I did with mine but unfortunately I can't get to it to measure.
