Love the fenders, not sure about the hood and not crazy about the paint job. Any more pix of the hood vents close up? Are they open and functional?

Yes the hood vents are functional that was my whole reason to do them. Never liked fake vents/scoops.

So it's a stock hood that you cut out the factory forward facing inlets and bonded in rear facing heat extracting louvers?

The fenders and hood look excellent. It's got a very aggressive look without being over the top, which is not easy to achieve, so well done.

2009.5 SBM GT: Lots of show with some go.
The garage queen.

2008 IOM GT: Some go, working on the show.
The daily driver.

2004 Blazer Xtreme: Lots of go.
Sold and will be missed.

Yes, cut out the stock vents and fabbed and welded in the new louvers. Wanted functional extractors for the 1/2 mile and road course this summer.

Yeti, good hearing your still around we'll need to meet up one of these days. Went to Cars and Coffee in Blackhawk on Sunday it was packed with cars had to park way out to the side.
