    Thumbs Up Finally sorted some bonnet vents...

    Some of you will recall the complete disaster I had a few months back when I got a Lumma bonnet sprayed in the UK and delivered to Courtenay damaged and a complete mess .

    Well since then I've been looking for some inspiration for something a bit different in the bonnet department, and something that is functional in reducing under bonnet temps at the same time.

    Finally I've found something that I liked - but this is only the first part of the bonnet modification, but will set a theme.

    Voila - a pair of genuine bonnet vents from a Maserati 3200 for 30 uk pounds from ebay.....



    Here's what they look like on the Maserati....



    ...and no - I won't be doing this mod in China!!
