    Are the vents int he dash insert in the '71 to '74 cars removable in a non-destructive way? I bought an extra insert from a member and want to experiment with putting a vinyl wrap on it but need to get the vents out of my way first.

    There are little tabs that hold it then in place. Challenge is after so many years, things are brittle and metal is stuck. Hopefully, someone will chime in and provide a good way to remove them. You could make a template for the wrap and mask off the vents.
    I gave up trying, and decided since I had painted my dash black, it would look better black than the carbon fiber I have elsewhere.

    good luck!

    Here's the back of the vents. I'm tempted to try and push the metal pins through.

    Yes you can push out the little pins and they come right apart. I use a 90* awe to push them out.
