Front Vents - Resin Set 2.0

Originally written last year sometime lol.

I wasn't happy with the front vents that I had made. I know I spent a lot of time making them, but I wanted them to especially look right as these are the bits that people will focus on. So was looking to buy a set from Don Jarr via ebay.

Well I don't have to save up as was kindly offered a spare set from a member of the UK R2 Builders club. These are very much appreciated indeed!

I measured and marked a centre line for the centre vents. Then drew roughly where the outside cut should be, then I started with a drill hole and then started sanding out to size with my dremel.
R2D2, R5D4, Vents

R5 - Top Vent
This is one of the brackets I fitted to support the top vent.
There will be more substantial supports for these as I can imagine these
being pushed in by kids! lol

And here's the top vent test fitted.
