    Terracotta would be awesome!

    If all you can get is black I find that Testors brown model spray paint gets very close to what an original pair of Terra Cotta vents look after the years of aging.

    Excellent! I have a line on S.E.M. spray paint that is a good color match for BLUE.

    I've seen it at local auto parts stores, either O'Reilly or AutoZone, but I didn't look closely enough to see what colors they stocked.

    I would of course return them in the same condition you send them and provide you a free 3d set for helping me. They would be out of a black ASA which is like ABS in strength and has weathering and UV stabilizers in it. The 3d still shows print lines so they won't be as smooth. You could sand them down and paint to whatever color you want to make them smooth.
    There are other colors available, but none that are a match to the MA61 colors and I only am buying black unless a lot of people want a certain color.

    We are waiting for someone to send you a pair of OEM perfect ones, so you can get to work.
    The RIGHT SIDE one that Bob Shapton sold on Ebay went for some serious cash.
    It is is such good condition,it would be a good one to 3D print from.
    I suggested to print ONLY the top section and use the existing lower vent section. WAY easier to print just the grille section.

    The grille,by itself, would be a little work to attach to the lower vent "tube".
    To be fair to the 3D printer person,minimum order should be 2 sets.
    We can sell the "Extra" set to another forum member,during a meet later on.

    Do you see what I'm proposing? Just the grille and attach it to your lower tube any way that will work.

    There is no reason to print the entire plastic piece when just the top part is cracked.
    Cut off the lower section and attach it to the upper grille. See?
    REAL duct tape would work fine. The aluminum stuff that is a peel-apart affair.
    Hot glue would work as well.(Not really).

    Just make the grille with a small section below the grille to attach the lower duct to.
    ANY COLOR.
    Make a small run and take some raw photos and then one or 2 that were buffed out.
    You are waiting for a couple of vents to reproduce,then?
    Who will do this for us?

    I hope that one of our members got this RIGHT side one:

    It was sold. Just scroll down a bit.

    I'd never use hot glue....that stuff just doesn't stick very well.

    Epoxy or JB Weld!

    I like the way JB Weld works, but it stinks like HELL!
    Worse that fried dog poop. I just can't imagine anything smelling any worse.Maybe Wipe New.
    Even as old as I am,my nose works really well.

    Well,I wouldn't treatment.
