Nice but the air scoop actually goes on the other way pointing to the windshield.

The air pressure is actually higher at the base of the windshield and flows forward towards the front of the jeep.
Just spray some water on the hood and take it for a ride, you will see what I mean.

Yes, it is right, but I have made so while I will put loovered hood panels on the hood at the 2 side of central bump to refresh my turbo d engine, and in this situation, wiil the hot air go into the car: no good

I think you are asking "if you put hood vents into the hood to help cool the under hood temperature. Will this heat go into the Fresh air intake?"

I don't know.

Tape some yarn to the hood and watch which way the air flows.

Like this:

Like this:





it is exactly the same as Your second view (I have buy parts by quadratec) and it is probably necessary while a turbo is very very hot;
this heat is added at the heat of cooling system and also the intercooler: to much temperature, and this hot air do not go in the body

Now, I am a lonely jeep boy, so I have a little bit time to work... and some work on my jeep;
at first, at rear, I have put on an hitch and remake a new rear "glass" in plexi, while this part on the vehicle when I bought it was completely destroy
view 1: before
view 2: after

at second, forward, I have got a problem with the american turn lighte, while they was hidden by the front bumper;
I do not want put on the french Renault turning lights (in France, nobody love this lights), so I have found swiss turning lights, monted on the bumper, and I have got an other problem, while with the turbo, it is very hot under the hood, so I have mounted grills on the hood: views 3 and 4

For the original screww and bolt addict, all of these is reverse possible, while I have all the original parts, engine without turbo also

Looks good. I like the old school double tube bumpers. They went out of style years ago over on this side of the pond though.
I think retro never gets old on a CJ.

Wonder If scoops on the inner fenders would push heat up and out of the engine compartment? The front fenders are a natural scoop, you would Just need to direct it into the engine Bay.

I thought that the CJ's in France all had the super ugly front of the fender mounted turn signals. Did your jeep come without them or are those after market fenders?

Yes, You have right, but all of owners put these bad turning lights out, and that the same for my car: when I have bought them, it was not turning lights on the fenders

I have think so also, but I will made this for my big restauration:
I will restore the fan box and made a scoop in the right fender for the intercooler;
perhaps it will be fine to made a scoop in rear direction to put the hot air due to the turbo out in the right fender:an other idee...
But today, I have seen that it is not so hot in the engine compartment: I had lower heating in the body
LOL!!!
