i also make parts for an obsolete gm product. you have no worries as your investment is extremely cheap! i'm jealous. the last part i made (first of this year) i have 9500 in tooling alone (not including machining costs) and the finished part sells for the same price you are looking at for the vent - and you will most likely out sell me 20 to 1. maybe more

Re: 1964-1966 center a/c vent

made the first vent balls today. experimented with color to try and make the face plates as close to original as possible. the top pic is the original face plate color with my vent ball color coming in close. a few more and i think it will be a close enough match.

Re: 1964-1966 center a/c vent

You're doing some very nice work here. You obviously have a lot of experience in mold making and resin casting.

Are you aware that the pics you posted in the beginning of this thread are no longer visable?

If you don't mind my asking, how or where did you learn resin casting? It is something that has interested me in the past.

Re: 1964-1966 center a/c vent

Jim-
I received my faceplate yesterday, and I have to say that if it's a "factory second" faceplate, than I cannot imagine what the others look like. That piece is nice! Well done, sir!!

I too, am a stickler when it comes to my parts, and this piece is the real deal and passes my test.

Guys, if you want a kickass part for the money, Jim is your guy.
