If you are going to make them functional, as in cut holes in the bonnet, do it all the way and sink them into the bonnet a bit. They will always look 'stuck on' otherwise, when you could integrate them.

don't like the look at all.
the shape doesn't suit the model falcon you've got.

steer clear of "sticking" anything on.
if you're going to do it, make it sit flush with the bonnet.

but i still say it doesn't look good.

hey maybe this as an idea (might sound stupid but meh) just put 1 vent on, the one where your airbox is and have the vent acutaly sitting in the bonnet making use of it.
