They're not reproduced yet, you'll have to buy them used. They're called roof sail vents.

If they aren't pitted badly they can be rechromed. I believe someone is repopping the vent slides.

If the chrome is in good shape, you can easily respray the paint inside the fins and remove the excess with lacquer thinner. If the chrome needs love, then send them off to your best local chrome place - then paint them when they return.

I removed the vents, then reinstalled them with epoxy.. and a little glass cloth to further the strength of the bond.

You might also check with the Eleanor people in Dallas. Every swap meet they bring the remains of take offs (dashes, seats, trunk lids, doors, etc.) that are not needed for the clones.
