let me know your thoughts
THAT'S FUNNY, I was thinking of the very thing this last month and ordered these 3 fin stick-ons.
They came yesterday and haven't had a chance to see whether to mount them High, middle or low in the vent.
The angle is just about perfect to match
Obviously this pictured one is for the passenger side

I "borrowed" a picture from Google and played with PAINT program to decide what level to stick these on....
Guess I will never have a career in graphics......but I think the higher on the vent is better

OK. My OCD is showing. They have to be in the center.

Seriously, it's what you like that counts.

I am kind of neutral on them. I'm leaning toward "like" though. I think they are right for that color. It's odd because it seems pretty natural for the car.

This Sky's not perfect, but it's perfect...for me

I like the shape of yours better but also couldn't decide where to put them because of only 3 fins. The ones I put on are 1/4 inch half round polished stainless steel and I was able to put four on so it matched up with the four vents we have on our cars.

Love to see what you decide, please post pics

Buddy,

I get the chrome deal. The other half's green car has every piece of chrome it came with and wants more bling. Wears a bling hat the same color when she drives it.

I saw a cross fire yesterday, with the same type three bar deal. I forgot about the Corvette having them.

A nice warm day this week and I'll put them on.

Not bad, needs lights - but indeed goes with the wheels.

Now you've got to update your garage wall photo

I have the lights too! I put in red led strips in my vents and home made laminated glass wind deflector.

I will be updating the photo, I actually print them myself I have a printer that can print 5 feet wide and lengths longer than 300 feet if needed.

I added the fin trim to the fender vent and as suggested, centered.
I like how they add a little bling....
otherwise I may have gone for the LED's in the vents.
