    I know I didn't bring the camera or my phone damnit. On another note the felt pad under the hood is off and I was considering leaving it off. Now those nasty sewing machine sounds will really be loud!

    Re: So maybe I'll just make a DIY Heat Extractor hood

    Here are the legendary Z34 Lumina hood vents. They are big and they should get the job done.
    The hood is still in the R&D phase. The vents are a little bit raised in the rear. The flanges may have to be tweaked since they have a design feautre that makes them stick up a tiny bit. Before we address that I'm going to run the car at Road Am. to see how the vents function. I'll provide the fab details once we know what the exact mounting is going to be.

    The aero hood pins would have been tough. We had to make brackets to hold the threaded rod.

    Looks pretty damn good, and once the shop figures out getting them level they should look great! Whoever came up with the idea is a frickin' genius.

    I will say that I think my mock-up fitment looked better with the vents moved in a couple/few inches from the character lines on the hood. Does the underhood structure not allow for that placement, or did you just think it would look better with the outer edge of the vents lined up along the hood crease?

    The structure did make it hard to move them in much more. It becomes thin like a single skin towards the middle. They sit over the power steering pump and CAI on the driver side and the fuse box and (in my case) the catch can on the passenger side. There is plenty of air space underneath the vents. If we moved them in there would probably still be plenty of room except where the intake manifold would rise up. The flanges have posts that fit through holes in the hood on the Lumina. They are mounted to a rectangular metal pad first then the pad is spot welded to the flange. This causes the flange to stick up. We can fix that we just want to check out the structure of the hood first. Meh, for what I spent it beats 2K for an aftermarket hood. They would look better frenched in but now we're talking $. Funny this post started in the appearance section when it could just as easily been in the performance section as you pointed out........genius.

    You are right, for what it costs to do its definitely a viable option.

    That looks pretty badass. Any provisions for rain trays of some sort for those of us who are still using the car on the street?
