A plastic vacuformed piece would be great...It should clip on so you could drive with them on, I think, is best. I just need night protection from flying crap, so I fabricated a temp design until Steve gets one made - a few things, the vents are curved so a plate does not sit perfect. I baked mine to get the curve right. I took a piece of 1/4 in plex and cut to shape and fabbed some 3/8 inch plex blocks that attach underneath and make it a drop-in piece - all I need. The look great and work perfectly. Whole thing wrapped in 3M Di Noc CF:





Ashley - I PM'd you on another situation and will bring them when I see you and Steve on friday.

And no, I'm not putting a car cover on every night during the mean season here....
I live in Sarasota, Florida and I have had Hex vents on 2 different Camaros for a year and a half now. My car sits outside everyday in the rain and the only water that gets in my engine compartment from the pans are where the drain holes allow the water to flow to. Which is towards the front radiator area on my car.

If you drive your car in the rain, you are getting water all over your engine.

The water doesn't fall down on my engine at all from rain and as I posted in my photo thread I may get a few drops on my engine cover when I spray the pressure washer aggressively, but only a few drops.

GM knows that water sprays the engine compartment from under the car as well and from the grill when you drive in the rain. So they have rubber seals on all the wiring harness connections. I understand your worried about a flood of water coming in and flooding the pans, but that just doesn't happen. Even in the hardest of downpours my drains handled the rain and flowed out through the holes.

If you live close by, you are welcome to come see my car any time.

Just message me

Yeah I saw the photo with the leaves. I haven't had any end up in mine yet, the honey combs keep them out of mine. If you are under trees though that drop a ton like that I can see the huge downpours pushing them through the honey combs.

There are other finer metal meshes that look great, it may be possible that Steve could use a different metal screen material for customers in areas where that is an issue. Or those covers are a great idea as well.

I wouldn't mind using a cover on mine when parked at my house.

Give us the "same house hold, poor college kids, living on their own" discount and we'll make it work to get them both this year? BOGO free would be fine

I came home in the middle of a rainstorm today and immediate after parking, put my new covers I made on and they did not move in 35 mph winds....and you can see how much crap blows around like I said above:

Do you have anything between your vents and the paint?

Great to hear that! Looks like you solved the problem of storms getting things inside the vents. Looking good.

Looks wicked! Another mean looking Camaro looking even more mean!

I just love the look they bring to the Camaro!

I love the look you have given your Camaro, it is fun for me to look at all the posts and see what everyone is doing with the Camaros.
