Side scoop screen

Were the side scoop inlet metal screens chrome, or painted to match the car? My car has the screens painted to match the car. I can't find a good photo on the web sight to make it clear to me. I am hoping they were chome. It would look really sharp if they were chrome. Thanks, Kimball

I am under the impression the black "liner" behind the aluminum screens are not available.

Thank you, that helps alot. I think I will drill the rivits out and clean them up. Maybe I will polish them. Thank you, Kimball

Does anyone know where to get this liner, or what to make it out of? Paul's book says it is vinyl. I guess that can be purchased at a sign shop. Does anyone know how thick?

Thank you for the offer. Before I saw your message I purchased a roll of “premium vinyl” from Walmart. So far I’ve made one too big and one too small but have plenty of material still to work with.

Alternate non concourse method:
1.)Just paint the recessed area Black, then install the Argent screen.(The vinyl is superfluous and holds moisture, IMHO)
2.)Use S/M screws to secure the screen instead of pop rivets. (Less chance of cracking, easier to R&R)
