Yeah I was thinking of getting a bit of dryer tubing or something (I'm sure they sell that kind of thing at autozone) and making a bend for it. I decided to also cut out the three "slats" in the cover where the fog lights would be so it should get a nice lot of cold air when I'm driving at speed now.

Right now it's dry season in Florida so we can go three weeks between raindrops.
