Where to buy small round vents

Looked at the vendors listed in the HR search engine (zoops, old air, vintage air, air-tique, southern air), they look to be 2.5" diameter and larger. I'd really like to find smaller vents about 1.5" or so.

Anyone seen anything?

Call

I would still call Vintage. They make units for VW as I recall and those are small. Nice folks, so they will direct you if they don't have what you want.

I am not sure they'd work for you, but home centers sell small plastic vents for siding and faschia boards. If you wanted to add some venting, you'd drill a hole and pop one in. Maybe you could adapt these to fit your application.

I checked with Vintage, no luck.

Oval vents? Sounds cool! How do I get in touch with Phipps? I've never heard of 'em before...

Edit: Found 'em.. $60 a vent?? Owch. They're really cool looking, but still. Owch.
