    Received my Hood Louver Kit!

    http://www.rocky-road.com/kjlouver.html

    Can't wait to install them. I have a full weekend off. First weekend off since September of last year. Shouldn't take me more than a few hours to install them.

    Project and pics will be on hold for about 1-2 weeks.

    I found a site that sells colored rivets. Going with black of course. I want a clean look without having to paint aluminum rivets.... blah!

    NEGATIVE! The primary purpose of this mod is to enhance ventilation out here in HELL. Besides, they do look cool.

    I thought they were supposed to looks like this. Isn't the open side supposed to face outwards so that they can suck in air? Yours seem to be on backwards unless it's to deflect sand from going in.

    With wheel spacers.....if you drive in a spirited manner...I advise you to have lengthened studs put in. Wheel spacers will limit the amount of stud the lug nuts can bite on..they end up only getting the last bit...can snap off on you. I have seen the results of that.

    the video on the website shows he has them installed correctly. Shows the hot air being forced out thru the louvers.

    Nah, I just parked down the street from the car washing place for a quick few pictures while she was still dust free.

    Cutting the holes was surprising easy. Pop rivets....
