Hood louvers?

Ok ladies and gents,

I wanted to know where the water drains from the louvers on the hood of the new mustangs? Does it get channeled away from the engine compartment or does it drop down into the engine bay? I'm sure Ford thought of this. Do you know any after-market add ons for those hoods that don't have it or do you just need to purchase a new hood alltogether?

Thanks.

It does drop down into the engine bay, but the water barely gets on anything. On the driver side it doesnt touch anything and on the passenger side you get a couple drops on the fuse box cover. Everytime i wash my car i dont even get soap in the engine bay and the the couple of drops of water wipe away in seconds. I was worried that it would get everywhere but im impressed with the design, it functions well.
