Hood and vents will be OEM color. Subtle attitude.

It took 5 beers to make that first cut. Then one beer for each subsequent cut. For those that are interested, I'll be placing the extra vents up for sale soon. I have the full set of 4 to do the Zilla, plus another full set of 4, and another pair of the large only. I beat out the same guy on all 3 of my Ebay auctions I won. I think I pissed him off.

The two smaller vents will be very tricky. I also need to peel my custom hood liner, cut it for the two large vents, and recover it. I have the material and adhesive for that already.

I'll be fully prepping and priming the vents and hood myself.

I love it when someone tries something new, especially if it involves cutting up a perfect body panel.

Hmmm I bet those vents would look great on the 87-91 hood, hehe.
