Very nice, have fun! Didnt realise difference in 400 bonnets before, your vent look closer to the front, maybe home made?

Not sure it was on a coupe I bought few years back from off here belonged to a guy called oldwheels it’s a fibreglass cover on a metal frame from a bonnet he took the skin off I never noticed the position of the vents 😯

Your radiator vents are probably more benefit than most, idea was to force air in front and for bonnet vents to let hot rad air out, its questionable, think the other vents where to provide clearance to top shock mounts and air feeds for carbs. Lower spoiler vents where flexi pipe directed to brakes. 

Fiberglass on metal frame is a nice good idea! Full fiberglass aint good at high speed.

@Shaun: Great looking car, enjoy it!

Those vents look normal, look at this pic:

I had to make a "home-made" bonnet cause the Belgian MOT wants a "CE" marking in fiber bonnets. My vents are more back because the standart frame

is under the skin and are more optical less cooling : (old pic)

About the other vets: As Evo wrote there main reason is to provide the clearance to the Gp B shocks, look at this pic: (try to zoom in)

You can see the top of the shock mounts in the vents.
