The front air hole

As you see in the images below I sliced the front and made sure after mesh smooth the front where the windshield come later, was funded. Then I hidden the rest of the car to have more liberty working with the front. Basically I deleted the central faces and extruded the edges several times.



This is how it looked after the extrusions:

Next I lifted the edges in the upper part (the ones with red). After the edges were perfectly aligned with the faces (where the windshield will go) I welded the vertices (in the third images).

Now the work with this mesh is almost over, I wanted to be sure that the wheels will fit good in their holes:

Next, the windshield:

I created a box and then modified it with edit mesh as in the pictures bellow:
