I just ask because I have seen people make a big deal of the Jay Leno style hood because it doesn't have anything to catch the water falling into the engine bay..
But water gets in through the grille too right?

The hood has rainguards which I removed for the photo.
These rainguards will prevent water from getting into the top of the engine bay.
They are easily removed with about 5 or 6 philips head screws each.

This is the exact reason I chose VIS over Seibon. Seibon doesn't offer the rainguards. Water should not damage your engine but my car is entered into shows and I keep my engine spotless.... so the less water on it the better for show preps.

Made it to Pensacola!

It's been much harder to hide from the rain here than it was in San Diego.

Thank you!

The trunk deck lid cover is from ACS and I highly recommend them. It's got 2 bright LEDs that light up the trunk, looks great, and it's easy to install! ( the "SS" black chrome emergency release is installed wrong in that pic- I've fixed it now so the orange doesn't show. btw, the black chrome emergency release doesn't come with the lid cover. I got that from ebay i think?)

I've got an RK Sport carbon fiber trunk with formed in mpd1 spoiler that is on the way....

and real carbon fiber trunk drain covers that should be here this week.

and.... at that point I think I may be out of money
