I plan on making hood vents on my vehicle by cutting out the areas in red (pic 1) and using wire mesh to cover them up and should hopefully look like the 2nd pic. The goal is to be able to keep my grill block in the summer months.

Ive tried researching this but theres not much information about if hood vents help make a car more aerodynamic or decrease Drag Coefficient. Any of you guys have an opinion on this, id like to know?
