Received the kick panels from Ames Performance yesterday. They are not exactly what I was expecting. The texture of the plastic is a bit different than the originals. I have AC and ordered the ones for AC cars. The driver's side only should have a vent for outside air. However, the repro does not. I think that I will try and fix/fill the gouges and scratches in the originals and use them instead of the repros.  John

I wonder if the other GM lines have a different vent shape for the driver side.

Allrighty then,

Found fresh-air vent and no a/c kick panels, now ready to order my charcoal carpet for floor/kick panel/door panel and have one more unknown. The dashpad and dash metal are also grey, but what about the interior of the a-pillars? Same grey as dash or Mid. Aqua?

The inside of my A-pillars are white, the same color as my interior.

Don't forget the header. Believe it is also the same color as the A pillars.

Ok, thanks much. I assume that the trim along the a pillar is also white? Grey dash pad, dash and steering column, kick panels and carpet. White a pillar paint, header paint and trim. Any idea on shade of white?
