I think I would rather just take these vents an cut into my hood. I'm not sure how to source the vents though.
The dome is too square and too high. Looks to muscle car.

As much as I like the vents for heat dissipation, I'm worried about the water/maintenance issue. I do like to have a dome though and like the Siebon one (E9X M3 replica) the most. Wonder if I can find a local place to fabricate a dome on top of the stock hood.

I am still kicking myself for not getting a double sided CF Vorsteiner hood not too long ago. I waited too long to pull the trigger and ended up missed out on the sale. It is by far the best looking hood for our car IMO.

It would have to be the same material as the Hood. I have seen too many times hood cracked at the seams of the vent/dome due to different materials used when the expansion rates are different. As we know the hoods are the hottest part of the car.

The one you want has too many holes for water to get in as the car stand still in park. As for mine in motion, the inside pressure keeps water out. To wash the car, I block the holes with duck-tape.
I love this hood!! Doestrogen this hood come with the holes for the nozzles to spray windshield fluid? Or did you have to cus tomorrow make it? If so how please! Thank you!

PTUNING (the shop who installed it) had to drill holes for the nozzles.

Update: for almost thee (3) years, the hood is still looking brand new:
1. No rock ding!...simply amazing.
2. Perfect shine. I regularly put spray on UV protectant after wash.
3. There are "minuscule" warp by the hood hinges. There are visible in certain lighting and angle, but others would not notice them.

Tip: Order it it during Winter months via Seibon dealer for great discount! PTUNING charge $190 for installation. I bought Reflectix and high heat spray on glue for the insulation.
