    Hood vent for a Testarossa

    Searching for a hood vent for a Testarossa. I heard it was an import, possibly a 82 Honda station wagon ---WRONG---
    I have never seen a hood vent the size that I need and I have looked at so many imports in salvage yards that I have developed a taste for rice.
    And the joke is,<br />when he awoke his,<br />body was covered in Coke fizz !

    yeah I also have been hunting around for something to use for my 308 front vents.. so far all ive come up with is altering the stock fiero ones for the headlight vents and just welding up some flat alum to match the looks of the rear grill.. good luck.. if you come across anything be sure to post.. thanks

    the ones i have are the mera style molded ones right now.. full vent not even the flat lid spot like some people have done.. yet I still dislike that look.. just not authentic for my taste.. there was once a kit builder that did a clip to perfect specs with correct vents and hoods over the lights but it also required a whole different hood. Im trying to incorprate the hood I have with updated real metal vents, even if part of the vent has to go up with the light. I'd love to see closeups of other peoples vents though. Next to go is those gaudy @SS side louvers.

    Air Dynamics makes a separate 355 bolt on hood vent. I am not sure if it is the same as a TR. John might make those as well. I have only had 355 and 360 stuff from him.
    If you're not confused, you're not paying attention.

    Nope sorry. That looks like an older Ferrari of some sort. Not a TR. Don't have the figures in front of me but is about 3 inches wide and roughly 30 inches long. Mounts just ahead of the windshield on the hood. Will get back with better dimensions.

    Here is one for a 355. Will this work?

    I did see one on a Prelude that was the right style but it was too long [side to side] over 40 inches!
    Mine is about 28 inches.
