What do you think? 2014 Corvette Hood Vent I have searched and can't find anything like it. Wondering if someone could "Photoshop" it to see what it would look like. Since I can't find one for sale,wonder how hard it would be to have one made?

The angle may be a little too aggressive to match the stock Fiero front. But, if you took an Angle Hood vent and built a replica of the new Vette hood grille matching the front angle, that would be SICK!!!!! I suggest the Angel Vent because of the raised edge around the opening being not-dissimilar from the lines on the new Vette hood...

Cool idea!

That is pretty good. But I like it better as one piece and without the separation between the two vents.

Nice work, looks great. Are you going to put water catching trays under them?

No, it will be venting the radiator. It does not go into the storage compartment.

take care...

Bob

PS: I should have mentioned that the cardboard above it was there to cover the vents so my tools didn't fall through. It's temporary,

Its been a while since I looked under a Fiero hood, but as I remember only like 8" of the front of hood are over the radiator. The rest of the hood covers the spare tire compartment. Seems to me that the tire compartment is completely open to water under that series of vents since they look like they go half way up the hood. Maybe its a bad angle or Im totally wrong. Id have to see an open spare tire compartment to tell for sure.

Cut out and mount, OEM, $200.

Nope, its a standard Fiero addiction vent, with the exception of the gills, that is actually moved forward toward the radiator (I thought it looked better). I've had the hood on the car, so I know it's ok. I think the cardboard covers make it look longer.

That appears to be nothing more than a mesh grill backing. A $200 glorified gutter guard.

I think your right. I thought it was the mesh and the louver panel.

Why not use the mesh under the 84 4 cyl in the rear over the engine vents under that vent or something similar, I'm sure there is something in sheet form available that will work under those vents, they do look good as long as like you say they are just in the radiator area. and what about the headlights under there as well? are they susceptible to water damage from those vents?

They do look good!
