Default The body

The body finally arrived, and one of the first things I wanted to do was put aluminium louvres in the bonnet.
The original car had I think 6 or 7 inch louvres, but because I chose a non flip front end, it came with an ordinary opening type bonnet, which due to the position and width, the full size louvres would not fit/be practical.
I went to B nQ and they had some cheap ally ones about 4 inches wide which I decided to fit.

The XKSS had more louvres on the nearside as that is where all the heat from the exhaust manifold needed to be vented, so mine had to be similar
to look the part.
