Metal Hood Vents

  Designed for Stage 1 of the Build the Ghostbusters Ecto-1 by Eaglemoss. View build planner

Made from solid metal, these replacement hood vents for the Hero Collector Ghostbusters Ecto-1 are much lower profile, highly detailed scale replicas of the originals.

Installation instructions

1. Remove the existing hood vents if already installed.
2. Ensure the hood surface is clean and dry before attaching the new vents.
3. Identify the left and right vents by their unique rivet positions:

4. Remove the 3M backing and affix each vent into position, ensuring that the vents are aligned to the holes in the hood and sufficiently cover each hole.

5. That’s it, you’re done. The 3M backing will strengthen and harden over time to ensure a strong, permanent fixing.

Redesigned to add missing detail, improved thickness and material, whilst also removing the unsightly screw heads visible on the original Eaglemoss parts.

At only 0.3mm thick, each vent is super low-profile matching that of the real vents on the Ecto-1.

The vents are self-adhesive and easy to install – finished to a high level of detail. You’ll even notice that the rivet locations are different on each vent, positioned in the exact same locations of the originals.

Features include:

  • Made from metal – More realistic, accurate and authentic to the original Ecto-1
  • No screws – No more ugly screws and no risk of snapped screw heads when fitting (a common problem with the Eaglemoss screws)
  • Lower profile – At only 0.3mm thick, these vents are significantly thinner than the standard Eaglemoss parts, making them more accurate and realistic
  • Correct number of louvres/grilles – Often overlooked, there should in fact be 18 louvres/grills on each vent rather than the 17 on the Eaglemoss parts
  • Self-adhesive – Easy to install, each vent has a high quality permanent 3M self-adhesive backing to last the test of time
  • Added rivets – Unique to each vent and matching the exact positions on the real car
  • Added halfway split line – The hood vents on the original Ecto-1 car were actually made up of four smaller vents rather than two long ones – the added split line is designed to help give this impression

What’s included:

  • 2 x Self-adhesive metal hood vents (Left and Right)
All other model parts and accessories shown in the photos outside of the ‘What’s included’ list above are not included and are shown purely for demonstration and application purposes.

    Received my shipment today and installed these hood replacement parts. Needless to say I am very happy, they look so much better than the original parts. Love the care taken in the packaging also.

    These are truly awesome. They work perfectly and were no problem to mount. Every product from Mike is professionally made and packaged. I'm always impressed.
    One suggestion to those using these. Tape off an area underneath the vent - slightly smaller - paint it black, flat, gloss whatever you've got. Then mount these vents. They will really pop - it brings out the slots in the vents versus the white hood as a background . Wyatt

    Another winner for Mike! I have already bought several mods for the DeLorean and have been very happy with those. The hood vents do not disappoint. They look so much better then the ones supplied by Eaglemoss and are very easy to apply. Thanks Mike!

    Bought these to replace those horrible screws that were given with the original build great value and adds alot more detail to the model. Keep up the work and waiting for the next mods.
