Anonymous

seen this an looks relitivly easy to do, cut out shape wanted, smooth off rough edges, re-spray bonnet, then put in some mesh, simple and effective



what you's think of this one?

any other idea's for nice bonnet vents without spending a huge amount of money?

i dont fancy something massive like an impreza or a evo vent or something like that, just something that will vent hot air from the engine bay, and costs next to nothing to do lol

I wouldn't chance doing this yourself as could work out costly if u mess up. Not bad looking tho.

probly would be best to go to a professional broomy, but if i got everything done by professionals then it wouldn't feel as if i've had any input on it.

i'd rather be able to say i've done a few things to my car myself rather than payed someone else to do it all for me.

there is some things i'd leave to professionals though, such as the re-spraying of the bonnet when the vent had been cut smile

just seen these vents in the DB9 in the topic about it, i like the look of these vents, subtle and functionable smile

I think the DB9 vents would look pretty sweet closer to the grille

Why don't you take that first idea and put small scoops in. I'm not a fan of ott bonnet vents, and I think mesh is a bit past it now. If you could get those holes and put a concave mould in, I reackon that would look nice and different.

cheers for the interesting feedback smile

i dont like ott vents(for my car anyway) i thought these ones were rather subtle ones in all honesty, small and mesh'd to try and keep a smoothish bonnet without loads of dips and raises into vents etc.

would put scoops in but im looking to vent the hot air out rather than pull cold air into the engine bay, as the zetec's tend to get quite hot, especially when in traffic.

hope that makes sense cool
