I have a '68 Charger that is being customized. I'm just thinking about side panels on the hood. A lot of pulling tractors run them. I'm wondering though, if they would have a bad effect on cooling. The left side one wouldn't cover the flywheel screen. Any thoughts?

I would think that if you louvered the right side pretty heavily it would still cool pretty good. I think that the pullers get away with it because they only run for short periods of time.
