    Cut 4'' from front mud flaps, Applied Fluid Film to frame for rust preventative,
    Are in Channel window vents worth the extra cost?

    Aesthetically speaking, yes.

    Functionally? Probably not.

    Coming from a construction industry and keeping with basic building envelope - in channel makes the most sense.

    Although trickier to get good adhesion - but like mentioned above, aesthetically much prettier.

    I'd go in-channel. I've got in-channel AVS brand and no complaints.
