Are those bonnet vents for a reason? I only ask because it looks like you're building that beast for some true off roading and wondered if there was a known reason to need the engine venting out of the bonnet.
Thanks for your comments, I would like to say the bonnet vents were a very useful addition following our trip to Mongolia, but I think I would be kidding myself ! Although they do help to dissipate heat from under the bonnet, I just wanted them ! The item above the windscreen is the 150w LED light, a fantastic thing, but above 80 mph it creates a lot of audible turbulence, so I made a D shaped front to go on it (more aerodynamic) and tilted it down to put it effectively in a stalled position, turbulence gone, will take it off when we go away again. The reason for the two tone this way round was because although there was a lot of damage along the sills (even though we had Seikel’s rock sliders on) we also smashed in the rear door when we broke all the welds on the spare wheel carrier and the massive wheel went backwards and forwards into the door. We were so busy at the time extricating ourselves off a mountain and out of a couple of bogs that we didn’t even notice. . . So we had a choice with the respray and decided go with lighter above in the hope it might be a touch cooler in the summer. Italy here we come.
