Hey all, first time poster so please be kind!!

Done some searching to find out about mounting these bonnet vents, but to no avail. I bought some vents from ebay, but they're just fibreglass blanks, no mounts on them at all.

So,

I'm wondering if anyone could please post up some pics showing the underside of the factory vents so that i can make some mounts to attach them to my bonnet? Or from the inside of the bonnet showing the mounting bracket?

Cheers,
Matt

hi, welcome to fordmods.

to fit the vents, have them painted to suit first and use urethane to stick them to the bonnet, bunnings etc sell sikaflex too which will work

i took a lot of pics of a gt from the front, sides and up high up to get a rough idea where the scoop and vents went.
