I bought this scoop, not sure why but I did, so I started the install today on my old hood. First I lined it all up and marked all around it with a black marker then in an effort to make it functional I cut the old hood open.


I drilled a starter hole to get the blade in there



Then I went to town with my $14 harbor freight air saw. Awesome tool.


After that I did some more test fitting and didn't like how the normal lines on the stock hood made the scoop sit so I pulled out the good ole 4" grinder and went to town.




Now we got something that fits nicely. I then lined everything back up and drilled some placement screws to hold it untill the epoxy dried.





It is a this point I found out the 2 part tool I had for the panel bond isn't the right one for the panel bond I have so I'm stuck here untill tomorrow when I go get the right tool.
I'll have another update tomorrow.

It will be glued on with panel bond then bodyworked smooth. The screws are there only to hold it in place while the panel bond dries.:thumbsup:
