    My Mercedes Benz in an accident.
    My father had a stroke and lost his peripheral view and is begging me to settle down.
    time constraints.
    Therefore I am gonna suspend the Vette project for now, and focus on priorities of order.

    I will return and complete the hood, the digital dash, the carbon fiber componenets, the racing IMSA spoiler, TURBOs and the louvers that can close and open and fat flared fenders w/ functional equipment.
    In addition, I will get back to my paintings also. I promised a few members paintings of their cars. I will do em, as I get the mentioned things under control.
    thanks for all, and once more

    YIKES! All that stuff happened between 5:01 pm and 11:19 pm??? What a stinker!

    If you wanna' chill under the hood, get some glass wrap on the headers. I bet that will reduce underhood temps about 60' - 75'. I'm planning on doing Hooker Shorty install with wrap tomorrow, and try to get before and after temps of the hood with my trusty little Mickey Mouse infrared thermometer...

    i could se yer logic if it were a cowl hood but vents on the side...i dont think will suck into the compartment air intake and you can just use the recirculate button on yer ac...if this remains an issue....im jus sayin..
    ...ive studied the under hood air flow for a little while and it still puzzles me as to where the gm brains wanted the heat to go.??
    its all sealed up nicely...no way to escape but down...and this doesnt seem the most efficent way to vent hot air...

    did you consider venting out the side? behind or even through the wheel well?

    No I did not. Again, that is not a bad idea though.
    Again, I have seen the Genesis louvers on Race cars.
    They are functional but on the cosmetic side, they look unique.
