yes, it'd be better with them all gone. Centre one looks too square on it's own IMO.

No cooling needed if the car doesn't see the road. :P

But really. You will need to get more air to the rad than just through the grill.

True Rando. Perhaps a show bumper... I have this old reiger lip that I would like incorporated in the show bumper.

What about functional ducting through the grille and under the car to pick up air and put where needed rather than relying on OEM cooling design?

With an upward facing fan mounted at the bottom and ducting to the heat exchangers, it would work as a daily.

That will be my show bumper. With Reiger 4-MO lip filled in. Now have OEM HIDS (not dark) plus silver grille.

HAHA.

No fender liners would help cooling big time. Massive hood scoop as well.

I was going to suggest an externally mounted radiator, similar in appearanceto the external oilcooler fad that almost took over the VW scene.

Removing the hood is much easier.
