The location for the vents was determined partially by appearance, but also because the underhood structure dictated their placement.

The holes were cut in the hood and the panels were tack TIG welded in place. The tack welds were spaced out around the vents to make sure the hood didn’t warp from welding heat.

Adam made a few more laps with the TIG welder to fully weld the vent, then he carefully sanded / ground the welds flush with the hood skin.
