Old motorcycle trick: cover the chrome or stainless bolt heads with black touch-up paint. Get a dab inside the hex to prevent rust.

So does it help with engine cooling?
Well I've had it out alot over the last couple weeks and can say YES it does help cool things down. I can tell the difference in my floorboards when cruising around with the doors on. It used to feel like the heat was always on and now its noticably cooler. I also havent noticed any side effects from the rain or water.

Got mine from FedEx last night.
I'm wondering the best paint to use on this thing?

If you have over heating problems I wouldnt count on this to help very much. It only cooled my engine bay by maybe 10*. But every little bit helps and it looks great!

I've had a heavily louvered hood (old-school punched louvers) on my OT 4x4 for many years. Not one problem ever with water, snow or ice. But man, does the A/C work better with the hot underhood air able to get blown up and out!

not much different than all the water splashing up from underneath when going through a water crossing

As an update to this thread, I would recommend the powder coat.
I prepped, primered, and painted mine, and the paint is coming off.

Dig the looks of these! Is that mud/water coming up from the bottom or air blowing it up? Either way it looks sick!
