Those look tight! Do the vents just pop out? Forgive my ignorance, I've never messed with them before, but it looks like a fairly simple and cool mod to do. Can you post what kind of paint and sandpaper you used?

--the vents do just pop out, i use a screwdriver to get one side out and then just "pull" the rest

--I used 2000 grit sandpaper, just enough to scratch the surface but not enough to loose the texture that the vents have

--I did 2 coats of 94 cents a can primer from Wal-Mart, then 3 coats of DupliColor automotive paint that matched mine, then 3 coats of 94 cents a can Clear Coat from Wal-Mart

NICE! I'm gonna go hit Wal-Mart at lunch in a few minutes and check out the supplies. I have a dark grey interior, so, I'm not too sure of what color to do the vents, black might be subtle enough. I just don't want it to be too distracting.
