So I like the new hood, but for the money these things cost, you think they would use something better than what resembles chicken wire only worse for cowl ventilation.
So I did it my way, and added a fuel pressure gauge as I have run out of room for gauges in the car(and keeping gas outside the car seems safer) Its not completetly finished, but this is just to give you an idea of what it will look like when I'm done.

Pics of original grill on the bottom, my grill with gauge on top. The gauge plate is aluminum diamond plate riveted using a back plate to attach it to the expanded metal. I'll plumb it off the schrader valve and run AN line to the gauge. Will wire the light off the parking light.
