Unhappy Fender Vents!

I donít know how everyone feels about the 2008 Focus with those Faux "Fender Vents"... I myself am torn . So I'm wondering how I would go about removing them if I decide to do so. Any tips or a "How To" would be greatly appreciated! Oh and Opinions welcome.

Well if you are good with fiberglass and bondo and paint you could fill the holes yourself. And IMO they look like crap lol. So good call on taking them out.

O yea and welcome

Somebody on here took off the vents and painted the chrome to match. Maybe just another alternative instead of removing them completely.

I would just take them out and just smooth it out and make it look like there was nothing there to begin with.
