i seen a whole front clip sitting on a front lawn forsale today the same style scoop as that. i was going to stop and ask how much for just the hood lol, figured they would want too much to hack it apart.

that looks really good on the beretta

I got the hood scoop YEAH! so i notice its a little longer then the beretta hood but not by much.. where have you guys trimmed off to make it fit ? off the front or the back of it. im thinking if i can trim if off the back then it will still have the nice V at the front.

Im going to cut out where the vent is and make it functional to get a little more air to help keep things cool.

I figured these would be fiberglass or metal, the one i got is plastic .

I cut mine down from the front part. I thought about making it functional, but don't want to make a custom drip tray

any updates on the hood scoop install ?

Im going to start working on mine over the next week or so. i have a starting point at least now the new hood is on the car and ive sat the scoop on and done some measuring to see what needs to happen.

The part that dips in needs to be cut out of the hood for it to lay down tight. im wondering whats going to happen to the structure part of the hood if its going to cut into the crossers and make it flimsy. my old hood was flimsy like crazy it folds all over when you try to hold it open.

I probably wont make it functional, would be cool to open it up some just for a little more air flow over the top of the engine to help cool it some.

Im thinking of cutting the extra off the back of it to keep the original point at the front. i only need to cut back 1/2 inch or less off the back, also this way i can keep the threaded part for the front bolt to hold it down good and snug.

I laid it out on the hood to get the back edge to be cut off, i laid it under my old hood and got the line on it for what part needs trimmed so it will match up on the end. ill cut it bigger to start and finish it on the car so its a good flush edge.

can you post some current pictures of it and some of under the hood.

i assume you had to cut the hood out some where the scoop dips down ?

Im going to trim the over hang off the back, its maybe 3/4 inch i think that has to come off and it should still lay down perfect, i still have to look it over some more and get it laid out. ive had the scoop for a while but i just got around to changing my hood and just looking it over to see what needs to be done to fit it.

now where the seam of the scoop meets the hood can i just mar glass or light body fill that and it wont crack ? or is there something else i can use for that.

Im pretty good with bondo so thats not an issue but im wondering if it will crack later on down the road, maybe i could just use a thin bead of seam sealer and paint over it that way its still a little flexible.

ill have to get you some more detailed pics when im with the car. i see the one i posted originally is no longer on photobucket for some reason. yea i had to cut a hole in the hood. i kept the metal bracing on the bottomside of the hood intact to keep its strength. i had to also trim the scoop down in the front cuz the scoop was to long as you probably already found out. i made some relief cuts in the scoop so that it would form to our somewhat slope to our hoods. i bonded it to the hood with a 2 part 3m product that bonded fiberglass to metal. worked like a charm too. i then fiberglassed the edge to mold it to the hood.

if I don't go with the L-88 scoop I'm definately putting a 67 stingray scoop on it with the scoop and the center hump running down the center, and if I don't go with that I'm gonna try to make a twin dome with the chrome vents like the one on my 68 chevelle, my car has the 68-69 ss hood and those are the domes I would love to add to it and make it fit the domes a make, woody outta add the twin dome to his retta ss it would be a special touch to finish her off and paint the chrome scoops black or the gunmetal gray he's got to match
