10 years ago (!) I posted a thread on this forum about the demister vents on an early flat-screen Ace. I think I have finally found someone who can make them if I can get either pictures or drawings or both. These early cars had vents that were sort of a rectangular block with the vent on top. Seem most cars didn't have this option, I seem to have a 'highly' optioned car with heater, demister vents, and windscreen washer!

Anyone out there with one of these early Aces that can supply pictures or drawings?

I have some new die castings for the early heater vents. They are made in two pieces that sandwich the scuttle panel between them,a specially moulded rubber elbow then connects the lower castings to corrugated tubes going to the heater.I'm afraid I don't have the rubber parts, I was going to have them 3D printed but unfortunately it turned out to be prohibitively expensive.

Luke, do you have my pictures/drawings of the original vents? Someone actually provided some drawings quite a few years ago to me, but between PC swaps and disc crashes Iím afraid they have been lost to time.

Peter, I don't have any drawings for these parts. I restored an Ace a couple of years ago that was fitted with these vents & I thought it was a good opportunity to have some moulds taken from the original parts while they were removed from the car.

I'll email you some photos of the original setup & of the new castings.

Regards Luke.
