930 turbo side brake vent fitment

Hi
Does anyone have a 930 turbo? I have an earlier 911 and am adding flares to the rear. Since then, I came across brake vents that I want to add to the modification. However, I do not have any reference points to mount this vent. I am looking for someone with a 930 turbo that would work with me to get the measurements necessary for proper installation. Any takers?
Thanks,
Tim

you know it's funny I can count on one hand how many times I have had a customer want us to add the vents in and I couldn't even make a guess to how many customers had me remove the vents . if I had to make a guess it's in the 100's many 100's .

Is there a way to remove them? Haven't seen any replacement panels, and it would be a hard piece to make as its somewhat curved...

Surprised no me has made a cosmetic plug to fill them...

the way we do them is to fabricate the patch pieces .
with out a English wheel and crap I would not want to even try to make the pieces .

most people say the same thing to me about them they make the car look to 1980's . add in the air vein inserts and yes they sure in the heck do .

I can't see a market for some one to produce the filler patches for them .
