I picked these up to help vent the engine bay. I'm on the fence about actually cutting the hood for them. I haven't even pulled the hood insulation to see if there's any bracing in the way, but this is where I think they look best. What do you think? Too busy for the '05 hood? Of course, if I installed them, they'd be painted PBM. My other option is to install them on the '04 hood I have to help get it sold.







Also, these vents are made of the same plastic as the bumpers are which means I'm gonna have to have them painted with flex agent added to the paint - is that something that I could get mixed at an auto paint store or would I have to mix it myself just before spraying them?

Mixed feelings when I look at the 1st and 3rd pics, but I think the 2nd pic makes a strong case for getting them installed. I think they would look pretty good if you get it done just right. I don't think they would look as good on an '04 hood, but the thing I like best about that hood is the fact that it is sleek and unassuming.

If you got those suckers almost smooth to the hood and obviously paint them to match... I think it would look HOT!

It would look much better if they were on top of the scoops. Isn't there a race car with louvres on the scoops?

I knew I'd seen other venting options...... I believe this is Mutha's car? I'm not crazy about the vents on the sides, but the vents behind the scoop bulges are pretty cool.
