I have an idea for the 'off season' anyway. There'* a couple businesses here that make magnetic door signs that can be any color and be cut to fit as top covers. Or I can make inserts for underneath out of plexi or acrylic. In the winter, I don't need the extra cooling.
"Doh" now I see it.
Seriously, there are alot of options here, but honestly, I'm more concerned with the hood insulator getting wet than anything else. No water will run off the hood into these, so it'* only a minimal amount of rain that directly hits the vents as it falls.
At lunch today with Greyhare and Cary (pitts guys met Cary this summer when we were visiting). After I get out of the throttle, we can hear a descending-pitch whistle through the new vents. I believe it'* the BCA/BCS dumping at the end of the throttle-down cycle. I could never hear this before, and might hear it any more after I re-install the hood insulator.
