Scoop on vinyl

I want to get a hood scoop, but the lines you see with white on white install makes it look like a cheap aftermarket hood ornament to me. I was thinking about ordering these vinyl hood stripes from AM and then installing the hood scooping on top of them. Has anyone done this and if so, did the scoop adhesive tape plus drilling through the vinyl for scoop install loosen the vinyl hood stripes

I don't think you will have a problem at all.

If the scoop just stuck on using the 3M tape you would have a problem. But the scoop is a bolt on addition so you don't have to worry about it not sticking.

Just be sure you like the look of the scoop covering the nice black stripe. Of course you can always remove the black stripe if you don't like the looks of them together. It will not be an option to remove the scoop after drilling the holes.

The only problem I see with a bolt on/3M tape sealing hood scoop is that they trap water inside of them between the scoop itself and the hood. If the scoop you are buying is open in the front, then this is not an issue.

I bought a Roush hood scoop for my 2005 F150. Had it painted the color of my truck (Dark Stone), so I had a good chunk of change invested for a "cosmetic" hood scoop. After spending hours with the template marking the holes to drill, prepping the surface so the additional 3M tape would stick/seal, I drilled and applied. Looked great, but during a rain storm, or after washing the truck, water got through the 3M tape seal, and it would "dribble" out from between the scoop and hood, leaving water marks and trails that I was forever cleaning and waxing out. I'd wipe it down, come out an hour later, and more water ran out, dried, and left a hard water mark on the paint during the hot summer.

Make sure this scoop does not have these issues. If it's a sealed type scoop (no front opening), then be prepared for it to trap water.

I think you just talked me out of it. Thanks for the input
