Since "lieup" mentioned it earlier about the hood,
, I minus well post it here. Plus, if you are following Endless Project on Instagram, then you would've seen the hood already.
Adding a vented hood was something I've been wanting to do for a year now. It's just timing...hard to leave the car in the shop for 3-4 months...but it had to be done. There's only a few options to do a vented hood. Option #1: Buy a carbon fiber hood, cut it up and mash it to your current hood. Option #2: But vents from Japan and mash it. Option #3: Vent your own current hood.
I choose the latter...below are progress of the vented hood.
Rendering the design to make sure it's what I actually want.
The first cut...there's no turning back now.
The second side cut and vents are spaced out 1 inch.

Test fitting on the hood to see if everything flow.
Hood removed to reinforce the bottom side. Notice how all the welds are nice and clean.
Hood is sanded and prepping for the 2nd stage of the project. I decided to have the center raised like a 2014 LS hood.
