Well well! I see that you got them in without my pics and advice. Nice work! Sorry I slacked on that!

They look damn sharp. And you got them in the "correct" way. :)

Did you get the drip trays to fit? If you have a strut bar, they will not fit well. But Jene installed her vents and only used the "mesh" section of the drip tray to keep large debris our of the engine bay. I liked the look and it was functional.
My car just has the vents, no trays. And they still knock into my radiator to strut bars.

Oh that's right. I think the rad to strut bars are the issue, not the strut bar.

Or you could build a small box around the filter below the vent and use the vent as a nice source of cool air for the intake like im doing :D

Dan: Yes! You need to do this!
