Ended up not being physically possible. I know, we were disappointed as well.

was there any consideration to making a provision to plug the vents? (something like the GTOs have) they have a rubber plug that can be easily installed/removed so the hood can be used on a daily driver too

Got the new hood on my car ! I gotta tell you the quality of this hood is AMAZING. The fit, well we didn't have to "fit" it. It just went on, and done. I'll post more pics tomorrow of the detail, friggin cold outside, and I'll take pics in better light. This is NOT painted right now either - it'll get painted next week. I honestly couldn't be happier - it just looks so mean.

If you have any doubts about it, you shouldn't.

Fix the vents so it will be better for a DD and you have a winner.

The vents aren't cut out - can do either. My car is a DD, and that was my concern too. I'll take some better pics today.

I understand that. What is the point of having two vents if they are closed all the time? I'd prefer to have them open with some kind of ducting to get rid of the water from rain, washing or whatever...

That is counter intuitive. If you have ducts to reroute the water, it is also rerouting the air flow, making it pointless. The thing to do would be to do what HPE did with the hex vents provide a "drip" pan for winter driving and just open it up during the summer.

You guys know it will not hurt anything to let some water gets in there. All electrical connections are weather tight. If you have one of those cold air inductions with no lid. then it would not be so good to get the air filter wet.
