    Hey everyone, I need to remove all of the side trim, including what I guess would be the venti ports, on my 69 Lesabre? I know the base trim just has screws, but I don't know the best way to remove any of the other trim pieces. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

    The venti ports and held on with "speed nuts " from the back side . I got mine off my 69 Electra but it was a bitch as you are working blind.

    I can feel the speed nuts with my hand, but I can reach the last venti port on the fender. Do you have to remove the fender to get to it?

    If I remember correctly I took the bolts out of the rear bottom of the fender and snuck my hand up there . Be prepared for cuts and blood

    And to make it easier pull the bolts out that secure the inner fender to the outer fender . At least the back ones up to the center of the wheel opening . Wear long sleeves and practice up on all your nasty words and phrases . Good Luck !!
