You don't...but think about this question below.

How do you normally keep rain etc from going through the radiator and other space into the engine compartment?

You don't. The engine bay gets wet, it'* normal and things are made to be insulated and waterproof.

Ram Air is only effective well above 100mph. Give it up. If it'* something else, call it something else. That'* a myth that needs to be clear.

How much road spray do you get on the engine driving in the rain? It'* a constant barrage. You don't need drip trays. driverjohn and I don't have them either.

Pat, on that install, they look kinda out of place. They don't really give the hood 'balance' if you know what I mean. Maybe it'* because I'm used to mine now, but there'* just something odd about that placement.

From a performance (heat extraction) standpoint, that'* not really where you want them.
