looks pretty decent, but we can't see the whole vent because of the picture size, might wanna try editing your post and re-uploading the image resized to 800px.

Cheers

Looks good! Similar style to what I have except mine are home made and patterned after a DB4 side vent (see my gallery pic). If you're going for originality though you might wanna try getting something like this, which was used on original healey rally cars. Your choice, either way it should look great!

Has anyone considered the Factory 5 side louvers? They list for $75 per set and look good.

I am curious where to purchase and price of the side vents that "351 Healy" shows in this thread or if they are for sale? I believe I can fit them on my Saxon Model. Thanks, tim

The Cobra vents mount inside and require a "finished" edge on the outside so I'd expect you'd want something with a flange to cover cut cutout edge??

I think Sebring International sells the vents "351 healey" has!!

I too purchased the original style vents from AH Spares in England only to find out they are too large to fit between the wheel well and firewall. If anyone finds a nice vent that has a trim flange on the outside let me know, the car is in the process of being painted now so they will have to be added after paint.
