No, I didn't vacuum for you guys and it needs it - don't rag me.
I pulled the rings, not the complete vents. Two were easy and one not so much. The drink holder rings were both very easy and they had a satisfying click on reassembly. The vent rings did not, so I do not recommend this method. None are loose at all and I twisted them to insure they weren't coming off, but it still didn't feel right going back on.
I used rattle cans, even though I have paint cans and even a airbrush kit, but it was just the convenience. Unfortunately, after consultations with my friend, I attempted to clear-coat after an almost great paint job. The drink holders turned out very good and the initial vent rings were even better. Well, the clear-coat didn't like the paint and it crackled. The second go-around, after lightly sanding with 600 grit, was not as good as the first and obviously no attempt at clear-coat. So I didn't get the glass finish I was hoping for.
Anyway, I am happy and I am saving for the V4 intake and the EC Phase 1, so I cannot spend $200 on vents.
Have a great week everyone.
