Thanks that's where I thought you were going.

I think it's clear(?) that at some point during the production run (pre M505 cars I'd imagine) the vents were added after the slant fenders were installed on the car. However, I'm not sure I understand how or if the trail started with stock fenders being cut to slant. There just doesn't seem to be enough fender left to work with after you cut down the originals....Not saying impossible mind you just hasn't gotten into my head yet as to how.

I'm starting to see that early on the flat top portion of the slant fender could have been cut out and a vented panel welded into place but that's about as far as I've gotten.
