Talking Painting Preinstalled Hood Scoop

Hey guys, ok first question for me on here, many more to follow

I've decided against rally and rocker stripes, in favor for a black hood scoop with a black hood insert. My bumper inserts, shorty ant, vert top, are all black, so that's the way I'm gonna go.

I have the GT appearance package, so I've got the GT hood scoop on my Sixer.....how are these attached factory? If I want to get the scoop only painted black, how would I get that done? Do they have to take it off, or can they mask around the whole hood and just do the scoop? Not sure how that works. What would a reputable place charge for that? Obviously you can't just roll down to Maaco and hand them your hood scoop *LOL*

My car showing the scoop:


And the insert I want to get at AM.com:
Black Mustang Hood Decal (99-04 GT)

Thanks!!

if you take your hood liner off you can see the bolts on the underside, just take those off and the scoop comes off, just tape around it to keep the paint from getting scratched up. A body shop can paint it flat black for cheap I wouldnt do it myself without a decent paint booth.

Yeah, all you need to do is pull the mushroom clips out of the hoodliner, disconnect the ground wire on the passenger side of the car that is hooked to the liner by the hood hinge, and it will just fall right off.

When you are done, you could leave the line off if you wanted as well...or just re-install. I recommend someone giving you a hand removing it if you plan on re-installing it so it doesn't get bent up or anything while you are removing the last couple clips and it is trying to fall on your head.

Then just take the scoop off like spec mentioned.
