    In place

    As you can see the screens are in place. The inal step was placing the molding. It was hard due to a tight fit, but this molding held the screen in place. I also painted the bare metal to prevent rust. You can see the black paint. I used touch up paint.

    Painted vents

    After it was complete I masked the hood and painted silver to match the Eagle badges that are silver on my car. I than used meguirs to polish the overspray because I didn't mask the ENTIRE hood, just the surrounding areas of the vents.
