I'd be willing to buy these vents if they cost:

  1. 30+shipping each

    I found a guy who would be willing to mold me some new b pillar vents. I have 2 that are in decent condition, but we all know how brittle these are. The small ones that are impossible to find.

    He can take one of my vents, and cast a mold, and make a few of these vents. He charges 45+ cost of materials to make the mold, and then however he charges for the vents. I'd expect a vent to cost 30-50 each.

    My vents have a couple of scratches, but nothing significant, but they will have some minor blemishes, unless someone would be willing to donate a perfect one.

    Would there be any interest in getting these made? If there's enough interest, I'll follow up with him. The cost of making the mold would be the biggest initial cost.

    Is the price per vent plus shipping or per pair?

    Check ebay. Thai repops are pretty common. Just search "Toyota RN25"
