Default Fender Vents

Hey there everyone, I decided to try something and cut some vents into my fenders. I know they are completely useless with the way the engine bays are set up on these cars so I was not going for functionality...only looks. I have not touched up the paint after doing the cutting yet which is why it looks unfinished at this point. So, what are your opinions on this mod? Do you like the style? Is the size alright? How is the positioning?

I agree with what Nemesis is getting at. Needs a little something to add a "finished" look to the idea. But it's a unique start, you've gone this far, run with it.

I like it so far but defiantly go with the wire mesh idea.
