Making the non functional Hood air vents, into functional.

IROC owners, and others who have the fake air vents on top.

I might be making mine functional with moveable vanes. This will be a lot of work, but I wanted to ask everyone in here before I do it.

Has someone else already done this, and is it something I can buy?

If not, how many would be willing to buy them?

The idea is to make them controllable from inside the car. Like a choke. Close them on a raining day, and open on a hot day.

Good luck, it's not easy. krio still has a set, buy them and work out how to close them off.
