T/A Hood Vents in Sail Panel

T/A Hood Vents in Sail Panel

Its not finished, just enough for a few pics.


#1 purpose to provide some cross breeze, 2 windows down isn't enough, even on a cool sunny day you roast like in a over as air just wont come in. Only got the left side done, was a chore but test ride noticed much more air coming in the car. Rain or water isn't an issue, its will be all sealed off in between the body panels with 2in foam n body caulk, boxed off, will also keep the 6x9 mounted just below on the inside from playing to loud outside

Shouldn't the gills face forward, so you can get some airflow?

no, they are meant to let air out, so air can come in the windows.

Its easy to test in a 4 window car, just put down the 2 fronts, then just crack the rears, the air can then flow in and out better.

I only want air to flow out of those vents. Gonna install a thin rubber flap to stop back flow soon as I find some.

They do look good there, I would have put them with the wide side down and the smaller side up to flow with the panel better. It looks mean, like something out of Mad Max movie, nice!

Ha! Nice! Ironic cause i was gonna do a Mad Max style thing to my bro's 88' Firebird which has just been sitting in my dad's garage for 5 years, had the idea for the notch back and the flat black and pretty much the same rims, this is pretty much what i was aiming for, although in those pics itd only be about half done, id make it out with a lot more "death race" style stuff and id customize the interior, lots of aftermarket, lots of home-made, im hoping to get started soon ;-)

PS: where did you get the notchback? was it completely custom? or did you order it and then add a few after-touches? I love how slowely it slopes down to the tail thats exactly what i wanted, i dont like the notchbacks that just end abruptlyright before the rear wheel

I think they would look better flip flopped, where the angled part followed the angle of the rear window line more. Just my $0.02.

I think it looks pretty friggin sweet.
who cares if they're "supposed" to go a certain way, that's the whole point of customizing your car, is to freakin *customize* it.
if this were a hatchback I'd be like...meh, but holy crap it looks Great with the notchback style.
very nice, can't wait to see finished pix ~

They are made to pull air out of the car, not scoop air and drive it into the car, why they face the way they do.
-----

for the rest

Ive owned it so long, that I have to keep mixing it up to keep my intrest.

It has changed styles many times and I have done allot of test builds in my head that took all these years to complete, But there was only one way to find out, just start cutting holes.

Though I have done nearly everything I have wanted to try, maybe not done the excat way I wanted cause of money but Im pleased.


I really want to get the fiberglass wide body rear fenders for it still to finish the look. Also get the police style roll bar built.



Only other goofy stuff I always wanted to try was real functional air foils that come out of the fender like the KITT gen 2 car, and a 4 corner Indy style built in jacking/security system [ try n steal that crack head ] [both of those kinda go together being it would have to be some type of hydrolics for the foils and strong like a jack to translate the downforce into the car and move in and out of the body.]


Also I have mulled over doing a hardtop/targa top, which is way different.


Everyone else uses a T top car or changes to a T top roof and makes the center bar removeable to be a "targa". But I wouldn't cheat like that, whole stock roof section would remove for a targa and then go back to look like a stock hardtop.

I think they mean backwards, NOT front to back, BUT right to left side?

Ohhh the layout worked out better plus the lower point section is the catch/drain, why its point down not up, a nice natural catch to funnel it out.
