I like it! I actually like th3e early 4th gen hood, so I think this is a great idea! I'm definitely looking forward to seeing the finished product.

Kudos to you for trying something new.

Are you going to make them solid or have you thought about using some vents? Some plastic scoop inserts from a GTO or G8 might work flipped upside down. Just a thought...

thanks man (and the rest of you'll). Every time I want to and have time, I step out and it's like 110 degrees and I just can't do it ... maybe when it gets a bit cooler
