That would help out alot with my stainless manifold and downpipe, under hood temperatures could be dropped significantly.

Shipping to US with the regular non-priority mail will be 12$ for the first 1kg + 7$ for every additional kg.
If let's say a door weighs 3kg the shipping will be 12+2*7=26$.
I don't know if our post charge in volumetric weight(if weight is less than the volumetric weight) case in witch a bonnet or rear hatch will cost more. But anyhow i will supply the recipe from the shipping charges

will do,but a little correction,just not to be misunderstood. There's no CS vent replica. in my opinion it looks odd on the ST165. It will be a rectangular cut with 2 flaps,one in front bent up and one in the back bent down towards the engine to aid airflow out witch it does in my current setup really wheel (tested)

More pictures with it here : viewtopic.php?f=6&t=38270&p=386757#p386757

That dont look bad at all, but I think id rather still have the cs vent. Even If I can just get a perfect fitting fiberglass hood I can have a shop mold the cs vent in for me. Unless you can do that as well, and of course it all boils down to price.

i think i will do the hood as it is stock with all the reinforcements in fiberglass and anyone can make they're own cuts in it...
Well see about that...first i want to check the quality on the fiberglass door that's almost finished

Lurking. Waiting to see the progress on these hoods. I may be interested. CS or even EVo 4/5/6 hood vents could work. Something like this:
