Wow good work, unfortunately I need the e36 GTR hood vents. I doubt the e39 hood vents would work well.

I'd be curious how you did the mold though. Did you document the process?

Are the vents you made open? They don't seem to be.
Are the vents on a gtr hood open?
What material did you use to mold them?
Finished hood looks good.

Yes the vents are open. but it will cut after its fitted on hood. because the pics are taken from front you cant see the vents inside.
mold material is epoxy resin with twill woven e-fabric.
