I couldn’t find a search on that site but page 66 is the place. But no info on rivets or if they were painted.

The search function is in the top bar where the paged are noted.

Per this link some were painted some not. Wil Mittelbach's picture with unpainted rivets is what Hugo showed in comment #12: viewtopic.php?f=13&t=37344&p=224325&hilit=behr#p224325

T6 fresh air valve trivia

#20 Post by Martin Benade »

A couple of years on I’ve finally finished up my valves. Luckily I’m not a concours guy so I can keep the brass rivets unpainted.

I noticed the original attaching nuts and washers from under the car, I’d assumed they were original, as I’ve had the car since it was only 12 years old and they were covered in hard undercoating, large washers with 8mm holes, and self locking nuts. Both seem unlikely to be original. Anyone ever noted what was there?

I rebuilt a couple of sets for my cars 2 years ago. I had to replace the foam. The rivets are solid brass eyelets. I drilled them out, and installed new eyelets. I wrote up everything in my newsletter, that can be found on Facebook/raceofficials You may have to scroll down a bit. When I am done restoring my fleet of Porsches, I should edit my hundreds of relevant articles for use by the Registry.

I went down a bit of a rabbit hole after reading this thread and then John Pierce's thread regarding fresh air ducts and vent boxes.
Tremendously good info there!
Anyhow, I discovered that my Behr intakes do not have screens, never even knew they were suposed to!
I checked Stoddard website, but could not find a listing for them.

Are they available? or do I have to start a treasure hunt?

Thanks for any insight.
