the vents sit just past the strut towers, I prepped any wire bundles with high quality sealant at all connections.

There are lot's of folks who have vented hoods, the new mustangs come with them. Better cooling, huge weight savings over OEM, and a subtle customization by using OEM paint scheme. Not sure if this would be right for a daily driver, I'm lucky enough to work out of the house, so the the vehicle indoors 90% of the time and driven on weather appropriate days. My other ride is the wife's swagger wagon (who also works from home) so I always have a car available. If that's gone, I take my son's GTI. Problem solved. It's not for everyone....
