RJT Hex Vents and Pro Customs Head Light Covers!

Installed these today. Love the new look of the head lights (got 'em for JDP Tyler)...

Before:



After:



Left:



Right:



Now, the Hex Vents!

Holes Cut in the Hood (yep got the 'biggest balls of them all' (AC/DC) ;o)



Vents in the hood!







Splash Trays:



Final Assembly:





Night Shot @ WhatABurger:



I'll put some shots of the car in the morning...

Really like how they turned out -- directions are good -- I took extra precautions by covering the hood with bubble wrap and I covered all of it!

Now, the Vitesse is in and that is next!

Can you get a shot at night with the lights on? I'd like to see what the front looks like.

Thanks for the kind words! It was fun -- my wife said I had big hangy down things ;o) to cut into that hood --

It actually was not bad @ all, took the time and measured often -- even used a ruler to make sure the markings were consistent with both vents -- the vents are well made and Hines did an awesome job getting them ready for me.

I love the head light covers JDP (Tyler) got for me -- really transformed the car!

I hope others who are considering doing mods feel its possible to do it themselves...

-Don

The vents are cool. Might have left them black so they pop more.

The headlight covers look too much like the Mustang ones...

But who cares, if you like it that all that matters.

I thought about the black, but decided I wanted them to blend. Appreciate your input! Understand about the covers but I do like that look. Thanks!

Did the headlight covers reduce the headlight performance at night? Any noticeable reduction in efficiency

Not much. Still good amount of light. There will be a little but the light goes through even the RJT painted cover. The back is all clear.
