Default Fresh air vent cover

I need to install a cover on my fresh air vent on the side of my house...does anyone know if anyone makes a cover, or an addaptor, that corrects for the ridges in vinyl siding? If I just install a flat cover over the vinyl siding it does not sit flush and the space around it caused by the siding would require excessive caulking. Any info would be appreciated.

I've never seen one but it is certainly needed. Maybe call a vinyl siding company?

Thanks.

I did some more research and finally found something. It's a surface mounting block which can be placed on the siding without having to rip out the siding. It gives you a flush surface to mount lights, vent covers, etc. on. The only other mounting blocks I knew of were the ones you had to put on before the siding...so i did not want to have to rip out the siding...here's the link for members' info/reference:
