Default Partsman's R53

After seeing MSFITOY and Bahamabart cut holes in the hood for vents, I figured I would do mine too. A very good friend who owns a metal/machine shop blasted the holes with a plasma cutter! Do you know what vehicle they are from? Should I keep them black? or Dark Silver?

sorry about the dark pics, I forgot to bring the camera to the shop. I still have to clean up the openings and smooth them out and add some screen, but I had to get my five year old home so we could carve a pumpkin.
I'll try to post some daytime pics tomorrow.

Thanks. Dark Silver right over the black stripe? I was wondering how that would look.

that's what i think too. you already got the ds/over the black stripe thing going on w/ the hood scoop, may as well pimp it w/ the vents too

I'm having the paint guy in the body shop here at work do my M7 scoop black with DS in the middle to match the hood.

The vents in that hood are sweet. I wonder if they were installed, or if that's an aftermarket hood.
