Installation is quite simple, you need to make holes in the hood, but before that you need to make the correct markings on the hood for the holes.
You will need a masking tape for this, it doesn't hurt to have a good friend or family member help you to make the correct markings. Divide the cowl into two equal parts with painter's tape, then create visual areas with painter's tape where the holes will be, conditional squares. Then on these squares it is necessary to outline the gills in the place where the gills will be installed. Painting tape will help to make the holes even and without chips, you can apply several layers of tape. But the most important thing is the marking, for best results divide the hood into equal areas - under pressure, painter's tape will keep an even line and repeat the lines of the car body - so a helper will not be superfluous.
After creating the correct holes, you can install the gills in the seats, it is recommended to paint the gills beforehand, so it will be more aesthetically pleasing.
We also recommend using black car sealant as a glue, it perfectly rubs the edges and merges with the body and securely hold the gills in place.
Good luck enthusiast!)

Material of Bonnet gills :
Different materials are used for manufacturing car tuning elements, the beauty, practicality and durability of the parts depend on their properties. To make you satisfied with the results, Rising Tuning manufactures and procures car parts including ABS plastic, a polymer that differs favorably from other materials.
This plastic demonstrates increased impact resistance, in which it surpasses styrene copolymers - polystyrene. This material is also characterized by mechanical stiffness and strength, wear resistance and resistance to deformation and melting in short-term heating up to 100 degrees Celsius. At temperatures up to 70-80 degrees Celsius, products made of this polymer can be used for a long time without their qualities deteriorating and while maintaining dimensional stability.
These properties allow to use ABS plastic for manufacturing of the most various elements of car body
Advantages of ABS plastic:
Optimal combination of shock resistance and elasticity provides longevity of the products.
• Under light torsion loads plastic elements restore their original shape without residual deformation.
• High dimensional stability which allows manufacturing of complex molded products with high accuracy.
• Good adhesion to paint materials, which allows them to paint products in any desired color.
