I just got the last set of mesh.. I don't know if i'll sell the original ones but if i do I'll let you know. Why not just grab one from Saleen?

I just bought two new ones from Saleen thinking they were aluminum, since thats what it says on their website, but they are plastic. If these tabs break I will drill them out and fix. Theres no way Im spending anymore money on hood vents.

That's kind of funny.. The way they describe it is pretty dumb, for those of us that know it's an aluminum hood it makes sense but they really think everyone knows that.. Should state: Vents for aluminum hood not aluminum hood vents!

I just need a temporary set until the carbon fiber vents are complete, they are a ***** to produce, have to make them in 6 different pieces and put them together. I don't want to end up spending too much on plastic hood vents that supposedly break easily.

I would run the car without hood vents and then purchase the carbon versions you really want when available. This seems more logical.

If you just need to borrow a set I should be able to help you out.. The car is coming out of the body shop tomorrow with no vents and i will install the mesh when they come in, thanks 281 Motorsports for that set by the way! As long as the body shop gives them back to me which they should I can help you out. I'll let you know by tomorrow or Sat.

Use a small countersink drill bit and go through the top of the grill just enough to seat your button head bolt in the plastic. Take the small black button head bolt, nut and washer and "through" bolt it to the hood.

Works like a charm.
Do you have any pictures of this method complete?

Well I guess this eventually happens to us all. My passenger side vent broke today. Used 8/32" counter-sunk stainless bolts with a nylon nut and painted the head black with touch-up paint.

Barricade mentioned the rust from the alloys. Yep, since a while back they got disturbing. I found McMaster-Carr with a stainless black oxide. All I did was replace the Ace alloys for the McMaster black stainless today. Still 10 x 24 1.5in. button head with a hex. I used four for just the fronts. The pack was fifty so I have way many. The 50 pack was about $10 so worth the try. Prod 97763A339 they call it rounded head. The car is mostly under cover so I cannot evaluate standing up to washing but that's what stainless is for. If anyone wants some ping me so I don't have to eat the shipping (small as it may be). Jason281, if you're team wants them we can figure that out too. Dang, I am so psyched to have this settled. 07 SC auto still fun with seeing Shelby GT350 flat planes driving around. The newer vents sure would be sweet but this is getting to be a proper fix.

I appreciate that, but we make our own aluminum "BAD A$$" hood vents, so we sell those.
