    After welding in a piece of (almost) flat steel, smoothing off the welds and dusting it with some Red Oxide it now looks like this:





    And it fits here, like this:









    It will be a functional vent. Years of racing doorslammers full of smoke made me do it!

    The LVV certification seems to have become a nightmare. There's a chap up north trying to put a Ram Cobra through and they are being quite ridiculous about it.

    Yes, I deal with quite a few hot rod/kit builders through my work and some of it seems not only stupid, but extremely discretionary.
    TBH I don't really care if I get the car road legal - it will just be a nicely detailed race car!

    The vent will draw through these holes which match up with the roof support. They'll have meshes between them and the roof:



    And outside:



    The holes will be finished nicely, and (aside from the high-level brake light) there will be some other electrical trickery going on in there!

    This is the panel that will sit behind the vent:



    4 small fans and two high-intensity brake lights.



    There will be a grille that sits between the two panels, and the fan stickers will be blacked out.

    All 4 fans will come on with the brake lights. Get rid of that burnout smoke!
