Chrome Windshield Vent Trim Accent for GL1800
ITEM CODE: AO451242, SKU: AO451242
|I did something different with this trim. Have you ever had a bug come through the vent and hit you in the face at about 70 MPH? Yes, it stings like heke. On my previous cycles I made a trim from a piece of flat plastic and put window/door screen on the back side then Velcro to attach it to the vent. With this chrome trim I carefully removed their double stick tape. Then put down contact cement where the tape had been and then laid some window/door screen over and pressed into the channel (using clear wrap (for food so it would not stick to my fingers). I let it dry. I cut strips of Velcro and attached the rough side of the Velcro to the channel of the trim accent (back side where I glued in the screen). Once that was done I removed the cover wrap of the soft side of the Velcro and pressed it the trim onto the windshield vent. I now have a nice looking chrome trim, with a screen in it (to stop bugs) and it is removable if I need to clean the screen. Word of caution -- If you do this be very careful removing the double stick tape as the thin part of the chrome accent could easily break, so be patient. It really looks nice.|
