Want to remove the non functioning hood scoop on my mustang. I don't want to spend the money on a dealership or whatever and I thin doing it myself would give me better satisfaction. I've been told heating up the adhesive would work. I've also been told using fishing line would work too. Has anyone done this task before. Any help would be appreciated!

Put some goo gone and let it sink in for a few mins. It will make the sticky easier to remove. I used it on my fender emblems.

Easy off oven cleaner is safe on paint and will eat adhesives.

Seriously, waxed dental flow works real well, kind of like the fishing line idea but much better. Then use goo gone to remove the residual then wax. Then you've got the holes to deal with. Cheers

See if you can find 3M adhesive remover. I got some for my hood scoop but I haven't used it yet. I heard its supposed to work good though.
3m adhesive remover is not safe for clear coats as it contains acetone, which will also melt the nylon fibers in a microfiber towel. I know this because of what happened to my trunk lid and tail lights when using to remove the glue from my rear spoiler. 3m did however cover the damages..

The idea of removing the scoop is the worst option You should just consider a take-off hood that didn't have a scoop, or heck even an aftermarket hood, as your hood will need a paint job after repairing the holes.

I'm in the midst of the exact same process on my 2005 Roush Sport GT and I'm planning on using a heat gun with a scraper attachment, but I'm planning on putting the hood scoop back on after removing vinyl stripes from the hood. Good luck with your project!

Easy with that heat gun, it will get hot enough to remove paint, just sayn.

Thanks for the advice and I'm planning on taking it super easy. It's my last resort to remove the scoop and the last of my vinyl tape stripes on my hood

I was thinking of doing the samething on my mustang removing the non functional hood scoop.... But here is my question would it be possible to remove that hood scoop and replace it with the the ram air shaker hood would this be possible or will the holes from the non functional hood scoop prevent this ??

The shaker wont cover all the holes
