Default Chome covers for the AC-heat vent knobs

It may still be possible to buy the previously available billet chrome vent knobs for $99 and ptwarehouse.com offers chrome covers for$14.
PTWarehouse.com - Accessories > Interior > Chrome/Billet Accessories

I assume that these covers increase the diameter of the knobs slightly.

I chromed my eight control knobs on the dash vents (first gen cruiser), using chrome plastic license plate screw covers. This required about ninety minutes of my time and $4.

The picture gives more information.

The chrome covers for the vent knobs do make the knobs a little bigger in diameter but they still swivel around.

I bought the $14.00 ones from PT Warehouse, they are still in the bag [don't like them]. You have to trim the knob for them also. I tried to get the chrome bolt covers but no one around here sells them anymore. So I moved on to the holes in the door mod. Have you done that one?

Crewzin,
Are the covers that (I believe I have read) you have, plastic or metal?
Did you need to modify the existing knobs and how are the covers held on?

I found it on an old forum. It fills in the open holes in the door pocket. It looks nice and was cheap. I got the plastic plug [can be painted] and the chrome in two sizes. Plastic popped right in, chrome is a pain but I like the look. Plastic be about $12.00 , chrome about $24.00.
