I like the above one because it's better integrated into the hood rather than looking attatched.

You can have them molded to the car like I did on my side vents. It would help to complete the package. Paint the vents the same color as the car (or if your two toning...the color of the hood).

I agree, have someone do some body work to blend the scoops into the hood, repaint, and why not cut some holes to let air in for cooling the engine?

did he mean the factory color of the car, most of us take it for granted as "teal". Buick Riv came in 3 different shades of teal, it was the 90's wink
