Show me your Bonnet/body/nosecone Vents/Ducts

OOPS posted without a message LOL


As the title really Im looking for ideas to get cool air into the engine bay/throttle bodies intake and exhaust areas. Underbonnet is too hot. IMHO.
I don't like the look of the big filters through the side jobbies ( and it'd weaken my bonnet as i only have 20mm at the nosecone end).
Looking for ideas like Naca Ducts or rs turbo bonnet vents. That sort of thing.
Thanks in advance folks.

If it looks wrong it probably is wrong.

mine at the moment. Was originally for feeding air to my intercooler but now not needed so might channel it into the air box or get round to fitting my new nose cone.

Also got to fit my new bonnet which will take car of the air to the filter.

Probably enough to make a keyring or two

That was made out of the last two bits i had left over from the half doors. If you can wait till winter i should have some leftovers from my next carbon project! But im not telling what it is going to let Alan guess again

The one on the side is air to the Air filter which lives in the footwell. The ones at the back of the bonnet are Metro,

Nice steve c.
This is the sort of idea I'mm looking for now. Ready made and cheap from the scrappies type vents like the metro one's you've used.
Keep em coming folks you're giving me ideas all the time.
