No further progress on the smaller two vents yet. Might be a week or two before I have spare time for that. I have more pressing issues with both cars that need to be addressed first (TB swap on the 93 and fix the airbags on the 95). I have all the new material for the hood unsulator waiting in standby with the adhesive and sealer, and also have all the primer for the hood.

Are you going to strip/sand the hood before the primer?
It dosen't look like you sanded before you put this primer on:

The black primer is just to temporarily prevent rust. He has said that he will sand it down then he is going to get the bodyshop to do the major work. Looks, good Bill.. hurry it up already!

You could do it on a Buick, but it wouldn't look right. I was actually thinking about it at work today, and for a Buick, you could do something like functional porthole vents on the fender, with ducting to the rear of the engine compartment. That could actually be cool.

Those portholes are actually an old Buick design that goes way back. They just brought them back.

So will this help keep the front wheels planted on the ground at high speed? Didn't you have issues with that up around 140-150 MPH? Or are these not nearly big enough to help that?

oh....i guess i learn something new everyday i am curious as to the answer to logan'* question. i am assuming that your vents have nothing to do with keeping the front end down though....am i right?
