The white hood looked good, I just could never do something like that. Pretty surew the cost is way prohibitive lol.

I think that comes standard on the Audi Quattro UR. They're quite pricey.

Yeah, its part of the hood on those cars. Perhaps there offered as aftermarket though?

Also, just trying to get ideas, the hood on the car has a square cut into it. Curious if anyone has any ideas on how I could maybe use this. Any stock vent types? Or maybe try and fiberglass something? Probably just going to get a new hood, but checking my options.

This is her cut hood. It is even on bothe sides, so if I made something work, it would be dead center.

Mine came with holes cut in it and mesh between the frame and the skin of the bonnet. You can see it in my build thread.

St215 motor + st205 gearbox into St165 JDM build

I am gonna change it but it is a cheap way to vent your bonnet. I wouldn't do it as mine is done with a hole right above the turbo though! When the car is parked rain goes straight onto the hot turbo, not good. I think with a bit of forethought you may come up with something a bit prettier.

Easiest way to cut it would be EITHER,
A jigsaw, but put masking tape, (At least two layers), over your bonnet where you are gonna cut to avoid the sole plate of the jigsaw scratching the hell out of your bonnet.

or you can use a 1mm cut off wheel but this will only do straight cuts and will burn the edge of the hole. MAKE SURE YOU COVER YOUR WINDCREEN!! The sparks burn into the glass and ruin it.

Best if you remove your bonnet from the car for both methods.

I may try some vents off a Grand Prix. Early 90's were boxy, so they may be an option. I just need to spend a day walking around a junkyard.

Worst case scenario I will be cutting a hood and making vents with a mesh material. Just need a good looking way to let heat escape and not get alot of crap under the hood.
