On a Bonneville Hood

i'm seriously thinking about it, since i'll have a banged up hood to toy around with, right now I don't have sufficient funds to acquire this particular set, my check isn't going to process in time

Opinions?

anyone feel free to photo shop if you're bored, otherwise i'll get around to it eventually.

I've seen Wren'* and Driverjohn'* Vents.

hey Pat, now that looks cool. Though i dont like being not being symmetrical on a car, unless its a badge, so i'd like to have both sides. well i got a spare hood so, lets play, your taking advantage of yours. I just need to swap mine first

The difference is WHERE you put them. The most heat is above the rear manifold and firewall.

And the hood design of our car will never allow the Range Rover vents. Give up before you waste your money. You need a vent that will fit within the confines of the under-hood reinforcement openings.

I actually have one set left. I've debated selling them or keeping them as spares.
