Nov.28th - A scoop is born.... I'm back from turkey day binge... (ugh, that hurt) and am back on my modding wheels... The pics you are about to see are *only* the rough out of the sheet aluminium template for the hood scoop. I plan on taking this rough shape, covering it with "Great Stuff" foam, and shaving and sanding that down to the desired shape. Then I'll use fiberglass to lay over it and sand it down to the shape I want. After sanding, I'll prime it, and commence to painting the outside of the case!!!! Here are the prelim scoop shots: Looking from the side, front of the case is to the left: Looking down the scoop from the leading edge: From the side: And after I unfolded the pieces and took off the tape, I'm thinking that this should be just about the perfect sheet shape to bend and attach it all together: These are just so you will get the idea of where it is headed. The sheetmetal cutouts will actually have bottom tabs cut so that they extend off of the bottom attaching walls of the scoop. I'll then cut slits in the top of the case roof for these tabs to fit through, then I'll bend them and JB Weld them into the roof (underside of the top) of the case. Then start up the foam treatment!! I saw a guy do this for his rig for some body work he was doing. This looked like such a cool way to get the desired form, I applied it to the hood scoop!
