These fiberglass cowl-vent-style hood vents are direct replacement for the factory hood vents in the 1977 and 1978 280Z, fit the hood recesses, and matches three of the four screw holes in each location. Fourth hole will have to be drilled to match. Vents attach with self-clinching studs (look like race-style flush rivets); can use small carriage bolts; can be installed with 3M adhesive trim tape; or can be permanently bonded using epoxy or body filler and smoothed into the hood with no seam.
Vents can also be used on earlier 240Z and 260Z models to improve engine bay cooling at idle or in traffic, prevent vapor lock, and reduce thermal stress on wiring harness connectors and other engine components.
They are supplied in hand-laid, non-woven fiberglass with marine-grade resin for maximum strength; and GRAY sanding primer gelcoat which can be painted to match your car, or painted a contrasting color.
For non-Z applications: Approximate dimensions are 15" long and 6" wide.
Price is for a pair of vents, left and right, and self-clinching studs for mounting.
