Any suggestions as to where I can get a couple of replacement ports? I recently picked up a 2x12 and one of the ports is chipped.

Maybe a member has a spare used one, but I have repaired them just like doing body work on a car and then sent them out to get the plastic chrome put back on.

But now there is another way to go that simulates the chrome great.
It's a chrome marker that leaves a tuff mirror like finish .

In regards to your post here you have to make 5 that I have to approve before yours will just go up to the board when you log in.

Also note that this site does not accept pictures, there's a Kustom site on FB that does.

Thanks for the advice. Actually I am a returning member who hasn't been on in a while, but I couldn't seem to access my old account.

I can't repair the damaged port on this one, because a piece of the outer flange is missing. And sadly, I had a couple of ports for years, never used them, and I *think* I may have trashed them in a recent move.

I'm also in the same boat as another poster who asked about changing the background or font colors, because I'm getting white letters against a light-gray background, and I can't find where to change that up.

You might need to concider changing both port tubes over 260-404 from Parts Express.
