Any chance you kept the template for your cut out? I want to see how it fits on my cj7- specifically if it will allow me to remove rusted areas

Sorry, but hood louvers are a good way to f-up a perfectly good hood (hope is was an aftermarket hood not a good OEM). Getting rain or snow melt on your hot engine and the fog that will coat your windshield as a result is not worth the minor amount of cooling.
Your time/money would have been better spent on wrapping or coating the headers. As someone mentioned a pair of vents on the side of the fenders is a better way to go if you can't find a better solution.
Cutlass327 and Matt1981CJ7 like this.

It's not the Voltage, but the Amperage that will kill you.

Brings up several points: #1 Fiberglass wrapping of header tubes is a NOT SO GOOD IDEA...Ceramic Coating is what to do, if you aren't painting them.
It's OK for track racing, but it voids warranty (usually), and causes accelerated rusting of pipes and welds.
#2 Factory top vents usually have a drain pan/stand-off on the lower side so water doesn't enter during rain or washing. You can easily fabricate that with tin or aluminum.
#3 As you can tell, I am a fan of side venting for numerous reasons.
