i never got the fiberglass trim because a. its in uk and b its expensive but i did make the cutouts in my hood for wrc style hood vents and put a wire mesh behind it and ran it like that for 6 mopnths or so but it never looked right without that trim so i welded it back up. i never had any problems caused by the water or snow getting in my engine compartment and i run an open filter. only diffrence i noticed in how the car ran was it ran alot cooler when i had the vents. i think it looked badass and kinda wish i had kept it like that but once i came to the conclusion i wasnt willing to buy the trim from the uk and wasnt willing to spend hours of fiberglass work to make my own that it just wasnt gonna happen
