Welcome to the forum, from SW Missouri! You can find mint 220 tall vents cheaper than IPE can refinish yours. Quicker too. I'd start here in the classifieds or OCP(link at the top)... If nothing shows up, head to eBay... They sold millions of those vents... Still plenty out there in mint condition. ...
