You can see there all the holes in the lower bracing part of the bonnet, so with the bulge above making a cavity, there's plenty of room for your hot air to sit or circulate or whatever you want it to do with out having the need to cut through the factory strength.
Also it's a lot easier to fit the bulge if you can sikaflex it to that framing to hold it in place when fibreglassing.

At the front of your bulge you should cut a bit out so air can enter the engine and cool it.

The bulge sits up too high in that pictures as well, it's not the nice smooth sort of rise that the BA's have (or at least doesn't look like it).
