Ideas of venting stock fiberglass hood

Was looking for some ideas on where to add some venting maybe to where the hood turn signal indicators are on my stock fiberglass hood. When I say stock I mean its just like the steel one but fiberglass.



I used to run a fiberglass hood with a sixpack scoop on my Charger.  I cut out the area around the turn signal indicators are because I wanted to use the stock ones and it ended up ruining my hood. Because I cut out the bracing in that area for the turn signals, it weakened that area and ended up cracking badly.

Just  :Twocents: but I am sure the scoop acting as a parachute amplified the weakness I created by cutting out that area, but who knows.


I thought of that too. I don't need to end up having to buy a new hood.


I've been wanting to do the same but can't bring myself to cut up my hood. Here's a pic from Autodynamic's car with the hood signal area cut out but his is a steel hood so I'm not sure the differences in the structure. I'm eventually going to do the same but with honeycomb mesh.
