Won't that allow water ingress from heavy rain that will stuff some electrical components?

I don't want to worry you, but some vandal has cut great big holes in your bonnet.

I think on a heavy rain day, you may have created spectacular waterfalls into the engine bay.

Its unfinished yet obviously but the holes in the bonnet will have stainless mesh fitted, and the reason for the holes is to vent hot air out they are vents not air scoops, they are positioned just behind the radiator so any water when stationary will fall down between the exhaust and the rad, and on the move air is drawn out

well I had about three months of great sunshine last year and had a few good days so yeah quite a few but more importantly the question you should be asking yourself is why would you kev up a car designed by pininfarina and then do it badly???

Looks like it will pour water onto the front bank in the rain, and you'll get clouds of steam coming off the manifold. The place you need to remove heat from is the back of the engine. The front spoiler looks very low - if you bash it on speed bumps, the car will look terrible.

Not to my taste, but each to their own.

Really not for me, but each to there own! Personally i think the GTV is already a classic and should be left how it was.

Remember when you angle grind your coil springs you must cut the top of the spring off and not the bottom
