Hex Vents Installed

Just had to get over the fear of cutting the hood! Used a Dremel to cut the holes but it was battery powered and had to stop 3 times to let the battery charge . I knew I should have bought an extra battery!

congrats - I want these so bad but have to figure out some way to close them off from the top when the car is not being used. Too much tree debris in my lot that will over load the catch trays....ideas?

I just got them. I'm just skeptical of much can the trays hold if it rains. My garage door does not work . Therefore my car is always outside.

the trays don't hold the water, they catch it and drain in front of the engine. that's how I understand it - I haven't installed mine yet.

you are one brave guy for doing it yourself. I had mine installed on my previous SS by Steve himself because I knew I'd F something up really quick. lol

BTW, your car looks great.

I installed mine myself. I had to watch the install video several times to make sure I was doing it right. They do not drain unless you make a drain yourself. The pans just hold the water. I would think if you get more than a 1/2" of rain in one session the pans will hold that amount. Love mine and one of the best mods.

I felt more comfortable using it as I felt I had more control. My jig saw is not the best quality and I was afraid of denting the hood if the saw bounced around too much. I just used a metal cuttng disc for the dremel. Took a little longer but time was not my worry.

I love mine! Installed them myself. Easy. Take your time. Instructions included. Also used YouTube videos.

Great look. Lots of heat goes through them!

They look great! Here in Florida it rains everyday in the summer and I'm not talking about a sprinkle. If someone has an idea on waterproofing or drain hoses...

Sorry to semi-thread jack but it is related and amusing... Was at a long light yesterday evening and a goober in an old pickup to my right makes a motion for me to roll down my passenger window. With some hesitation I did. He points to the vents on my hood and says, "I see you got the good one. Might as well get the good one if you're gettin' a Camara". I'm 99% sure he mistook the hex vents for the vent in the ZL1 hood and thought I had one!

kosmo, the vents look great! Good job! I did mine myself also but I used a saber saw. The only problem I had was that the blade was a little too short at the beginning where the reference hole is drilled because of the space between the top sheet metal and the bracing underneath. Other than that Steve's video and included instructions made it very straight forward!
