You could always try the cut some templates out of poster paper, trace them, grab a dremel and go at it. I did that and then drilled about 1.5 inch holes in the support so the air could get in there. then just put some chicken wire behind it.
Here's what I know about this tpic. You can get these from LR IF your're going with their ST5 IC, (edit...I don't mean only if you buy one, I mean you don't need it, unless you're cramming that thing in your car.)but they are pretty ugly, and are reputed to fit poorly, (stay tuned for more on this) You can buy a version from : GTRacing, AIR, Performance, and probably a few more that I'm missing. All are fiberglass, and fit like...see above. YMMV. Lastly there's SFR. They don't provide one, they provide a service to cut your stock piece. For an additional charge, they will add ducting for it as well. Obviously fitment is a non issue this way, AND it's about 100.00 cheaper. They say they can turn it around fairly quickly. There rep suggest that they will.
Lastly, you can search NZ951, and do it the way he did. He cut 931 style vents into his. He also provided a measured template for the mod. Good luck! Mine will be going oout too SFR.
I've had 3 nose panels on my car. Stock, which was a pain to get on and off. I tend to take the nose off if I'm working on the engine alot, as to not dent/crack/scratch it. I'm not a paint ****, and I dont care if the panel gaps are not 100% but if I can prevent it from happening I will.
I then picked up the AIR/Performance Products panel when I converted the whole front end to fiberglass. Easy to pull off and put on the car, just enough lip to fit under the sheetmetal so you didnt have to worry about it flying off. The fitment wasnt bad, but the gaps were not 100% factory perfect. As you can see from the photo, from 10 ft it looked great though.
Now I've got the Lindsey Stage V header panel. Best of them all in my opinion, it looks great (though again, fiberglass so the gaps are not 100% when you are on top of the car), gets rid of those pesky headlight locations (I'm doing a custom mount down where the fog/driving lights were), and is incredibly beefy, in terms of mounting.
Mike - your car is the only one Ive ever seen with lindseys header panel that looked good. Maybe its black, maybe its the cleaner look w/o headlights, maybe I just like your car. Not sure but It works.

NZ951, that looks good! What's involved in making it happen?
Look for my post on the vent positions I did if you want to mimik what I did, get some vents from your local Porsche dealer (part nuber in the thread I will bump it for you if you cant find it), then decide if you have the panel skill to cut and roll the tabs and space out to fit the vents, else, call panel and paint guy...

Thats where the price goes thru the roof ....
