hello, I noticed you have the flat black section on your hood to prevent glare from your overhead lights. Did it create an increase in hood/engine bay temperatures? I have heard other people that have done similar mods have significant increases in temperature on the flat black sections. I am looking for solutions since I have the glare issues on the hood with my H3. Thanks!

I am not sure, but I can tell you with the gear on the front bumper especially, my rig runs hot. Not tempature gauge danger hot, but the radiator can be heard gurgling after a workout.

That makes sense that it would already be raised because of the increased stress on the front, thanks!
