(Just did a preview of the post. The pictures are really small in the preview. Don't know if they will be larger in the actual post, hoping so).

Your car looks GREAT! I am sure you're will be done and on the road before mine hits the pavement.
The engine vents are actually an LAT Option #41. They are a remake of an original pair. They are functional, extracting hot air out of the engine compartment.
The hood on my car is the original metal hood. It had a hole cut in and four screw anchor holes around it. Apparently someone had mounted a tach or mirror or what not on the hood close to the driver. Rather than repair it I made a template, made the internal extractor scoops from some 22 gauge metal and cut a hole in the center and attached a fiberglass cobra scoop. I think it turned out good.
Keep us informed of your project.

I am also in the process of resto-modding my 65 MK1 -- body work is almost done and getting ready for paint.
I hope you guys keep posting pics of your projects, as this is my first go round I may have to pick your brains a bit.
