    If you're running a Fiberglass hood on your 1970 - 72 Buick you may have encountered the issue of installing factory hood vents inside the scoop area.
    In most of the hoods we've installed over the years the factory hood vent "STUDS" were to short to get a speed nut on the bottom side therefor making it a challenge to install the hood vents.

    We've come up with a cheap solution!

    We had a factory set of Hood Vents scanned and made into a high quality decal.
    These are the same dimensions as the factory hood vents would be. The look
    as you can see in the photos is pretty darn close considering this is a decal!

    Shown below are the Decals themselves:

    Shown below are the Decals installed on a Fiberglass Hood:

    Shown below are Factory Vents in a Factory Hood: (For Comparison)

    Price on a pair is $37.00 which includes the Shipping Fees. (U.S 48)


    Shipping will be by USPS / Priority Mail and packaged with Care.

    Shoot I wonder if I install these on my daughter's low mileage 89 Hyundai excel if it will make it go faster.
    On a side note those things are cool looking.

    Great idea! I cut out the holes and used a dab of clear silicone at the base of each stud and then screwed on the seal plate with another dab just for insurance. nearly 3 years and they're still on there.

    That was an amazing idea Todd. If you created this 10 -15 years ago . You would be Richer $$$$ Not to say they won’t sell. They will. But all the hoods that have been tinkered with the last 15

    It would have brought the price of Skylark hoods through the roof

    I can just see the rednecks and mexicans around here that put stick on fender vents on everything with wheels getting a hold of these and sticking em on a F 150 or a Neon

    If you use these how are you going to get your alternator and distributor washed when it rains?
