Finishing up the styrene pocket vent

Now that the chrome-painted pieces are dry, I gently held them into place and hot-glued them into position.

(In hindsight, this was a bad idea...the paint was still soft so the clamps left impressions on it.)

I had to trim the back panel a bit so that it would fit within the skin opening...

Here you can see I went a bit heavy with the adhesive to hold in the back piece.

And here is the finished piece.

I couldn't resist seeing how it fits in the skins...
