Hood Scoop Pictures Anyone?

Rats! A ladder fell on the hood of Mysti, and left several dents. Paintless dent repair won't cut it. So, gotta have some body work done. I've been thinking about adding a hood scoop, but the only one readily available is Norm's Fiberglass, and I'm not really big on his designs.

I like to see any pictures of Sostices with custom hood scoops anyone may care to share.

Thanks.

Werks did a scoop for one of their LS conversions. Check with them on what scoop they used

I'm not a fan of (mostly) nonfunctional hood scoops being stuck on for looks, but I don't mind the one you pictured. In combination with the stripes it results in a period sort of look.

I believe Norm made the one for Werks. He just covered the front vents. He has also made special hood scoops for others. I know Phixious did one that had the cylon look. I like that mine is functional for air in and air out vents. To each their own.

Rx4thesol, I love the detail and stripes with yours.

Here is mine:

Actually wspohn,
No stuck on hood scoop here and it is completely functional. I have a DDMworks Stage III supercharger and the air intake is located right behind the scoop intake grill. Works very well.

Sounds good. Do you have an under hood shot? I'd be interested in how the lay out goes.

Here is a good pic:


Together with the custom vented side vents, I rarely hit over 200 deg F. even here in the desert southwest.
