New Hood scoop on and I love it!


Recommended Posts

So after talking all this bull pucky about my local dealership...they fired the body shop guy that wouldn't do the hood scoop on my car and they hired a new guy. So I go there already hating and the new guy says he has everything in to do the car, so I'm stoked. This guy not only did the hood :happy feet: :shift: scoop , he also let me come down there and make it functional and he let me use all the tools I needed. He also cut out the honeycomb piece that was on the new scoop( dumbest thing I have ever seen) and he flat blacked the bottom of the scoop. This guy even gave me touch up paint for my car. So I had the hood stripes replaced and the hood scoop and I am very happy. By the way he did a fantastic job. He even had a professional vinyl guy come out and do the the hood stripes. I am very impressed.

Sorry I forgot to put up pics. Here you go......by the way, the weight difference from the stock scoop to the new scoop is unbelievable. That stock scoop is junk. If I hade to guess i would say that it weighed about 6 pounds versus the new scoop is about 1 pound.

I got it done at Raceway Ford in Riverside, CA. I had them just use the rivets that SAI sent them. I figured that I wasn't going to be removing it anytime soon and if I do remove it for whatever reason, I can rivet it back on myself. I riveted my hood pins and lower grill myself. When you get this done , take a look at the old scoop and check out the difference. By the way if anyone is trying to make the old scoop functional, you might as well give up....it is a solid piece of ABS Plastic.
