Parts needed for my ACE

Where is the best place to source these items? Should I call Thor? I need a couple mirror screw caps and a couple dash vent covers, here are the pics. Definately not priority items, I just want to cross these off my list. I have having a small scratch fixed in a few weeks, so I want the mirror screw caps so thise can be painted at the same time too. I went on line and was unable to find either of these items, if anyone knows on them on line, please let me know. Thank you!

Had a couple caps fall off under warranty and were replaced by CW. I would think Thor would be able to assist.

Update - I called Thor, they pointed me to the dealer, I went to the dealer and they could not pull up either of these two items from the Thor build sheets they have access to by using my SN and VIN. They did a manual request for parts, emailing Thor the pictures so they can say "Oh, ya, we have those". Not an issue, just will take a few weeks I'm sure. The parts guy at the dealer really jumped up to help, was impressed with everyone there. The dealer was Motor Sportsland in Salt Lake City.

I also need those same vent covers for my ace. I'm out of the thor warranty though. Wonder if the ford warranty would cover the caps?

No, they won't cover that. They only cover the compressor and controlls ad fan, thedeliver tubes and vent covers are all Thor. These things are onlu like $5.00, so I'm ordering extras as I can see them breaking over time. Once I hear back from the dealer, I can post the part number here.

Ok, got my parts ordered, Thor was quick to respond to the dealer. The mirror screw caps are $9.00 for a bag of 4. The dash vent covers are $29.00 each.... yes, I said $29.00 each. I only need 1, but ordered 4 because my family will ruin them over time. I can see it coming. The mirror screw caps came black (black plastic), I was able to find a dead on match for the color at freaking Home Depot of all places. It's like a bronze color, I scuffed them up with a 3M scuff pad, and sprayed 2 light coats of color, and 2 light coats of clear, they match perfect. unreal lucky. When I put them on tomorrow, I will put a tiny dab of adhesive silicone on the tongs that hold them in, this will keep them, but if I ever need to remove them, they will come out.

The picture shows my 4 caps stuck to duct tape holding them down so I can spray them. This is before the clear was applied.

This weekend I am adding a light fixture to the bathroom above the sink, and getting the 2nd AC unit on the roof. Will take some pics.

I've been thinking of adding a light fixture there also, can't wait to see a pic. Looks like it shouldn't be very hard to get power run there.

Now you have me thinking I should pop off the caps on my mirrors and glue them so they don't fall off.

I drilled through the wall and just plugged in behind the tv in the extra outlet plug. Easy. Here is what it looks like behind the TV:

Here is the light I didn't use. I like it better, but it's really heavy. I didn't like the idea of the class covers, I can see them coming loose and falling off when driving. Probably not an issue, but I decided to go with the lighter light.
