I have a hood scoop too and it has some gaps not terrible what do you guys think about stripes over the top to completely cover the gaps. Would it work I have heard it would ruin the stripes because of the gaps but maybe not if it was a thicker material used for the stripes. BTW I like how your hood scoop turned out it looks really nice. Had I seen you posting it earlier I would have recommended getting some lights under the scoop to make it be an eye catcher at night and at shows. It would have been good to do it while you had it off.

Here's what I mentioned earlier. Sorry for the quality it's rgb so you can make it any color you want.

Thanks and holy hell thats a cool idea! That's the beauty of no tape... I can pop that baby off in 30 mins if I need to. Hmmmmmmmmm...

As for the vinyl, I wouldnt go over a gap, it will be very visible. Get crafty and find a way to fill the gap first? Some thing that you can work in that wont ruin the paint? I'll try to think of something too.

Dont give me too much crap, but what about peeling off one string of this foam stuff and tucking it in with a credit card to fill the gaps, then wraping it?

Flexible foam

I'm not too worried about it. It's only noticeable from up close I just wanted it to look like it could come like that from factory. BTW the lights upgrade was only 13 dollars and I think u get like 16 feet of lights I used about 3 and it comes with 3m to stick it on though I used some extra pieces to make sure it really stuck. I did a zig zag pattern on the hood scoop and put the reciever in there then just got the remote reciever and extended it and ran it in through the firewall right to the steering column where it's not visible. Don't forget to use a fuse in the wiring. They're really cool for shows you can make them any color you want just like with the ford my color on premiums and u can make them flash one color or flash diffrent ones. The options are infinite for these lights you can even get them to work with your music and change as ur music changes in bass and such. Just go on ebay and search for smd 5050 lights

I just got it straight from the battery and put a fuse on it and ran it up through the hoods heat shield so it wasn't visible.

So like I was saying, the view from the cockpit is by far the best. Makes the Stang feel much more "muscular" and adds to the somewhat bare hood.

I've been keeping a very close eye on any kind of shifting or vibration and it hasn't loosened or moved even a smidge. When I push hard on it it still rocks the car, so I'm feeling pretty solid about the install without the tape (fingers crossed).

Thanks. Lmk if you are going to install. Got some tips for you if you add bolt points. Even with using the tape, the extra bolt point should help with gap consistency.

Great job! Really well done, but it would have been nice if there were some pics of how this was done.

UPDATE: YOU MUST USE THE TAPE!!!


Oxford5 was 100% correct, without the tape the scoop cuts into your vinyl and most certainly would damage your paint.


On the bright side, thanks to Oxford5 I kept an eye on it and corrected it before any real damage was done.


Also, using the 3 extra bolts WITH the tape seemed to give me a very nice consistent seal, so my work wasn't a complete waste of time. lol
