I've been looking around, and even though I see alot of people claiming to use them on their Fieros, I haven't really seen too many pics of the finished product. If anyone has pics of early 4th gen hood vents installed, please share. I am thinking of doing the same for my car. Thanks.

Just picked up a pair and find myself in the same boat. Would love to see what people have done with them.

Madcurl used the Camaro vents on the Madarch (see Construction Zone). I thought he did some experimenting with the Firebird vents, too. Personally, I looked at using the Firebird vents, but since they were non-functional, I didn't. I've seen more use of the 3'rd gen T/A vents in the fenders than anything else from the 4'th gens.

I have done this. The hood looks great! It takes a lot of work to get the hood to look right.
If someone could tell me how to post photos, on this forum, from my Galaxy S3, I can show everyone.

I've never uploaded pics from my cell phone before, but if you have a photobucket account, you can upload there, copy the URL, come back to PFF, click the Image button when you post, and paste. I can't wait to see the pics!!

Not that hard to make them functional. I like taking stuff that was designed purely for looks, and make it do what it looks like it should do.

Sorry, it took a while to post the photos. I had to wait to get back to my computer. If you do this project, there is a lot of blending in to get it to look right and as you can see the vents were cut open to make them functional.

RumbleB, that's one of the best hoods I've ever seen. Thanks for sharing I went ahead and got a set off of ebay to play around with.

RumbleB ... what did you do to the rear decklid? I see in in one of the photos. Can you show photos of that as well? I'm thanking of adding a rear scoop for air ventilation.

Thanks!
