  1. Spruce it up with paint - and haul out that trash!

    Vent-air, not exactly a name of a company I'd imagine would be making contact lenses. Their style was modified PMMA from the late 50's on, with grooves on the external side. Now.... if they did HVAC work, I might have a coupon from them in the latest Sunday paper.

    Dude, I wanna see this.
