Ive been toying around with installing hood vents in my CJ5 to get rid of some under hood heat. Who runs them and where did you get them?

I saw a jeep hood with 1 1/2 inch diameter holes in the sides that had been flanged inwards and had metal mesh screen attached to the inside. Flanged holes would be rather easy to do and three or four on a side would vent a lot of heat. And they looked good.
Now if I can remember where the picture was.
I have not had over heating problems and if I did I think the first thing I would look into would be a bigger radiator.
