I have a couple new styles of vent rings to show off. Gloss black powdercoat and Art Deco.
First up, the Art Deco. They have a rounded profile rather than the angled profile of the regular version. This gives a flatter front face which lets them reflect a little more light from dead on.
Not bad eh? Quite different from anything I’ve seen on the market. I admit, I’d forgotten all about these from the Darkside days. Dan sent me an email and reminded me about them. I’m pretty pleased that the manufacturer was able to make up a few sets for me to sell.
And now for the black.
Sharka’s Vent Rings in gloss black powdercoat. I am in love with these.
I’ve been trying to keep the interior of my NB as understated as possible. Sharka looks great with the shiny accents, but there’s a lot to be said for a roadster with a black interior. That’s the look I want for Bucky. So, I decided to order a few sets of vent rings in gloss black and keep one for myself.
And I’m blown away at how gorgeous they are.
They catch the light in such a wonderful way. I’m smitten. Gloss black powdercoated aluminum. Who knew it would look so elegant? I did not.
The downside is that now I have to powdercoat my shift knob. And get a metal brake grip to powdercoat. And… and… and… =)
Both of these new styles are in my store now. They (and the originals) are selling for $44 shipped in the US.
Those look fantastic!… have you thought about making a small ring too for the hazard button on the NBs?
I was thinking about that small ring just this morning. I’ll have to ask my machinist.
Love the gloss black, different look.
For Bucky I would like to see an engine start button where the hazard light is and the hazard light relocated to the cig lighter. I don’t think anyone has done this before and I think you are the guy who could pull it off. Just a thought.
Too late! I already put the start button where the AIRBAG KEY HOLE used to live. 🙂 That blog post is coming soon.
And it looks really sweet down there.
Way ahead of me. LOL
