November 7, 2007i was considering the esky side vents, or some similar, that are cut outs, not the stick ons that i see everyone with. the actual ones are made by street scene, chrome, and also have the grille insert behind the vent that matches my current grille. my question is how do i find out whats behind the fender? it sounds hollow when i tap on it, but not sure exactly and dont want to find out the hard way. i saw some cut out side vents on a black nissan armada and it looked pretty sharp. also, i am not comfortable doing this kind of work, so ill have to have it done somewhere, i just wanted to know what i was getting into before the madness starts and no one around here that i have talked to has done it before. so if i have some knowledge on this, im sure it would help.thanks. pg

November 14, 2007Hey PNALI,
The only insight I have to find out what is behind the fenders is to take off the inner splashguard in the wheel wells.
Depending on what side you're looking at, it should give you some insight as to what's behind each fender.
That's my two cents!
November 14, 2007thanks Gelly, ill give that a shot. i got them today, and im having a hard time deciding if i really want to go through with it.
November 15, 2007DO IT! I too though about this mod, I think it will look good....plus I want someone else to do it first so I can see how it looks
November 15, 2007There's a dude that rolls around in my neighborhood that has them cut out and put in on his gen 2 Escalade (02-06). I look'd at them up close while I was at the gas station next to him, and they look sharp. I have been planning to do this for a while, but it's hard to find time to leave my car at the shop for a whole week. Maybe I'll have it done while I'm outta town for Thanksgivign... hmmm
November 16, 2007I found a guy to put them in at a body shop, going to pull the trigger next week. the ones i picked are made by street scene. they match my grlle and valance. they look like range rover vents more than esky vents.
hope that comes up. anyways they are from stylinconcepts.com. i wanted something that would cover the cut of the holes. ill put some pics up over thanksgiving weekend.
November 16, 2007i just looked at the pic above and its hard to tell how big it actually is. the cut out for the hole is 11" x 6" so its pretty big. its taller than the esky vents
November 21, 2007Can't wait to see it man...I'm sure it will look tight. Post pics as soon as you get it done...
November 21, 2007i couldnt get it done this week bc of the holiday. but next week, im going in to have it done.
November 24, 2007i find myself checking the forum everyday because i want to see those side vents so badly! hurry up and get them installed!!!
