Can't decide wether to keep the vents on either side of the bonnet. Going to get it painted and I was going to have the holes underneath patched up as it not big on the vents and like the cleaner look. But it's kinda grown on me a little and it'd be easier if I left them. So what do you think?

I removed the stock series one bonnet. The bonnet in the pic is a full fibreglass aftermarket job. Vents are in a different location to the series two. I think they look a little over done but the misses has half convinced me they look alright. Got to put the bonnet in for paint in a couple weeks, so I need to hurry up and make up my mind

I think if you're going to retain the scoop / cowl, then the side vents make it too busy.

One or the other imo.

Thanks. That was my exact argument I had with the misses

Agree with VS 5.0, I would ditch the vents and keep the cowel.

Thansk mate appreciate the input. Think I'm going to do just that and remove them
