bxrman Posted July 13, 2009 Report Share Posted July 13, 2009 OK folks, I know that there is a dedicated hood scoop thread, and I have read most all of it, but am struggling a bit with getting my hood scoop replaced in my area....so here is the deal: 1. I live in the Washington, DC area (Maryland suburbs) 2. The Ford dealer I bought my SGT from is out of business (Ourisman in Bethesda, MD) 3. The Ford dealer near me - Sheehy Ford in Gaithersburg - is working on this replacement with me 4. Sheehy only sold a couple of these cars and has no real exposure them as a result 5. The Body Shop manager is a great guy with 20-30 years experience, but is scared of this repair (rivoting the scoop onto aluminum hood with hydraulic gun) since any mistakes and the dealership buys a new hood So far I have spoken to the Ford Warranty Program folks, as has he, and we both have a good sense of the details surrounding the replacement program, installation process, etc.....he has never done one of these, and has called around to all the area delaers and neither have they. Despite the fact that several hundred have been done nationally, it appears that none of the MD-DC-VA dealers have any experience with this. SOOOOO, my question to you all - have any of you had this repair done anywhere near my location?? While Tasca Ford is on the East Coast, they are not exactly convenient for me to get to (a few states away)......any and ALL help would be greatly appreciated!! Just to show you the state of my scoop, here are a few snapshots I took of the scoop - I think it is actually worse in person, but it seems bad to me even in the pics.......
