I would do as you say. Keep the function and come up with something cool. Doing what you gotta do is part of what we do, no sense in being pissed about it as I have found. If I got pissed every time something was not quite to my liking I would be in the rubber room for life..

I told him I can't make this clear enough, he needs to change it to something he WANTS so he isn't pissed every time he looks at it. Just sit back and relax and make some cool vents out of piece of a heater or grill or park lamp bezels or something off some car from the 40's or 50's. Make it COOL, something he wants! Not just ripping them off and being pissed. Trying to make something look like it never happen is impossible, you can't match that wood grain, so being you can't do that like it's invisible, do just the opposite and make it a cool chrome piece. Maybe the park lamps off my truck? I am not going to run those and that would be cool, something off the truck in that Fremont Drag strip shot racing him in his 39.

Any ideas guys?
I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..
