I finally got around to covering up my ugly holes in the hood. Here are a few pics. Made this one yesterday.





I made this one today. It is better. I think I will redo the first one.

Those are B&M oil coolers with a thermostatically controlled fan. I got them at Summit Racing. Here is the inside

I didn't put it there because I haven't shown how I made them. But I suppose I could post up something. They are 100% hand made and probably not something the average guy would try.

Very cool idea. Like the oil coolers also. Both of my XJs need this done to them.

Thanks. I was tired of cooling issues, so I chopped up the hood and added the coolers.
