  • GT6 Cabin Air Vents

    They look identical to to those in the TR6, but the ones in the TR, at least 74 and later, are constructed differently.

    I should pull one of mine apart, the butterfly valve feels loose and keeps closing itself. Helpful to see how these fit together!

      If had a couple I have been stiving to tear up for a few years, with a plan to chrome the bezels.

      Never took time to figure out how to bend the tabs...

        There's two types: metal ones with tabs that can be bent to get them apart and..... plastic ones that are glued together.... Here's a picture of the metal tab along with two painted with "chrome" paint and two done professionally with a spray on chrome process. I've got a bunch of pictures from when I took them apart if needed.

          Bobby-- As I mentioned in the article, my TR had the glued up plastic ones, which are tougher to do. These from the GT were an older design with the tabbed together metal shell, but different from your picture, so there must be at least three types.

            Ed.... I wish I could remember the discussions I had with someone many years ago about the various designs and what other cars were compatible with the TR6..... ISTR that Francois was able to get the plastic ones apart with a tiny saw (Dremel maybe?) cutting on the glue seam. Here's his site but I can't find the pictures for cutting the vents apart https://sites.google.com/site/faucherf/home

              Bobby--

              I remember coming across some posts about disassembling the plastic vents while researching for the TR6. Maybe the same discussion you mention. It looked like a doable process, and i probably would have tried it if i hadnt been able to get decent results with less invasive techniques. I also remember seeing Francois' very nice site. He did some nice work. Wonder if he is still tinkering with Triumphs.
