Anyone got a picture of an EF (or EL) bonnet without the vents in it so I can see what the holes should look like.
I'm a bit confused at how these isntall, from the pictures of the XR's I've seen, teh vents look very flush with the bonnet. So if I just cut the hole where the vent hole goes and drill holes where the studs go through, they'll be sitting up off the bonnet.
These are genuine ones, tops and bottoms.

What I'm thinking is that because the bonnet has two layers, you cut a perfect size hole for the entire vent to fit in in the first top layer, the the secon layer only has a hole cut where the vented air goes through, and drill hole were the 5 studs go through, drop the vent in, attach the bottom peice and do up the nuts and she's done.
