Default NB vented hood

So guys, should I bother trying to make this work and get a mold made and sell copies?




The vent is huge so i can make it smaller. I just dont want to waste my trying to mass produce it if no one cares

I like the vents that have more of an extended front leading edge over the vent. Like imagine putting a STi scoop flipped around directly in front of that vent.

I like it aside from the goofy thing on there. If that isn't there on the final hood I'd grab one in a minute.

Very tempting. I really want a nice extractor hood. The NB's need more stuff like that.
