Mustang Speed Mesh Hoot Vent Kit
These vents replace the stock hood vents and are a great way to dress up the stock hood on 15-17 Mustangs. They are made of high quality material (all metal) and fit exactly as the stock vents they replace. The instructions explain how to remove the stock vents but the stock plastic clips can be very tight. Removing a plastic support piece under each vent (underneath the hood blanket) is easily accomplished by a little prying and steady pressure to get the adhesive tape to release. The Drake hood vents are powder coated satin black with (I assume) stainless steel bolts and grill material. The vents I received had a couple of small rub marks (not scratches) on the exterior grill frame however they are not too noticeable. The vents use 3 bolts that align with holes left by the stock vents to secure the Drake vents to the hood. The only negative mark is that they do not seem long enough to hold the provided thick washer, a lock washer, and 2 nuts which are secured on the underside of the hood. I could barely get the second locking nut to thread on (I didn't use the lock washer). You can't just crank down on the bolts as the vent can start to distort or bow if the bolts are tightened down too far. However they seem to be securely fastened to the hood with minimal torque on the bolts. The overall look with the new vents in place is very aggressive and gives the hood a very track oriented look.
