Trust me :wink:


Trust you, provide some reasoning or something and maybe your statement might be more than just another opinion...
As weve already established the genuine Tickford ones don't do much, but there's no doubting aftermarket ones that are just covering a hole will do a fair job!

thats the reason why i would like them!

not to let air in, but to let the hot air rise and escape out them.

altho on a fairmont bonner may be difficult


hmm not impossible tho, there is an ef fairmont here at work and hes had the vents done

Yeah cool. That's what I was on about, the geniune Tickford ones. I have them (of course :)) on my XR6 and I've studied them and there is no way they will vent air without some cutting...

Aftermarket ones on the other hand.....

so would probably provide a decent drop in under bonnet temps id guess. wonder how much effect the standard aftermarket replicas would provide.. hmm. wonder if they would suit a fairmont bonnet.
