I really like the look of the NC vents on the NB hood. Can I buy them somewhere in Europe? I think someone in the UK used to sell your products - with a nice template for the NB of course... ;-) ?

Racing Beat Europe is our dealer on your side of the pond and they have the NC kits in stock

MX5 BONNET LOUVERS NC model by SINGULAR MOTORSPORTS

Reports from those who have put these in their NB hoods are that they use the NC template as-is out of the kit and it works perfectly.

I just had my guy line up where the "hump" was like we talked about and it was fine. He originally read the directions in the box and send me a shot at 12.5" from front, but it was too far back.

Good point on that distinction - the template itself works as-is, no need to modify it. However, the measurement written on it for how far back to space it from the front of the hood is indeed for an NC hood, so that should be disregarded for the NB. Just place so it aligns around the hump.

That template stick surprisingly well. I pealed a bit of clear off with mine. A blow dryer goes a long way when pealing the vinyl off the hood.
