FrigiKing Front Panel Vent Replacement


RMBaiada

Recommended Posts

I am still looking for and need the FrigiKing front panel AC vents that I posted about two years ago.
 
I need to replace both of the rectangular vents in my dealer installed FrigiKing AC faceplate for my 1974 BMW.
 
The current vent shown below is 5.8125" x 2.1875", with small. 25" protrusions on each end to allow the vent to pivot. The current hole for the vent is slightly larger at about 5.9" x 2.375"
 
Does anyone sell something like this size A/C vent, or know where I might find a suitable replacement? If near the same size, I can also use vents that pivot in a surround with a small lip.

If you're really serious about this, make a cardboard template of the missing grille, and visit your local pick 'n pull with template in hand, and start checking cars.  You just might find something that will fit, or can be made to fit. 

 

You could even remove the lower one, and fit four eyeball vents in two purpose-made panels; they'd do a lot better job distributing air around the cabin than the original Frigiking vents...

 

Be creative and see whatcha can find.

Try looking at this.  I was thinking the same thing and found these.  I haven't tried them yet but the dimensions look right.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
