I think they nailed the retro look with this hood scoop. I couldn't have asked for a easier installation, but be sure to pick up a few extra trim retainers for the hood liner...I broke about half of mine ...

Hood scoop paint I though I saw that you guys painted the hood scoops to our mustang colors. So why does it say unprinted on the scoop?

    Helpful tips

    I live in Northeast Texas. I ordered the scoop and a couple of decals late on a monday afternoon and they arrived friday morning using the free shipping method. The hood itself was very simple to install and really gives my Mustang a mean look. The hardest part of the install for me was actually removing the insulation from under the hood. The plastic tabs securing the insulation are pretty tough to pull out. Forget trying to use a flathead screwdriver like the video mentioned. That will never work. Instead I used a paint key to pull the tabs down far enough and then grabbed them by the shaft with needle-nose pliers. This works A LOT BETTER. Also, there IS an issue with fitment toward the front of the scoop. I ordered mine unpainted because I was going to paint a strip over my car, and I was just going to paint the scoop at the same time. So what I did was used some multi purpose indoor/outdoor caulking and ran it along the edges of the sccop before I painted. This filled in that gap in the front and gave the scoop a more "bondo-ed"/ fiberglassed look. I will post pictures. Mine is the black GT with the flatblack strip. The scoop did seem to have some small buldges and dips but nothing you wouldn't notice unless you were really looking at it. Overall I'm very pleased though. I think it turned out great.

    Great Scoop

    Awesome scoop. Had the local Ford delearship paint it in my Windveil blue. Be sure and paint the inside of the front of scoop up to the black mesh grille. First time I picked it up, got home and realized you can see from the sides the inside of scoop. Don't mount this without drilling the holes and using the nuts and bolts. The 3M tape is just a double insurance, not to be the only mounting to the hood. Lay the template over the hood making sure all the folds are flattened out, then use blue painters tape to hold it in place. Lay an old sheet over engine compartment before drilling, and I used a piece of 2x4 under the hood where it latches to jack the hood up a little. IMPORTANT - when drilling the two holes closest to the windshield, put some electrical tape around your drill bit so that only an eighth inch of the bit goes through your hood. I fortunately caught this before it happened, but something told me to double check underneath the hood before drilling these two back holes, and sure enough, the rubber hose that runs between the two windshield washers is directly underneath the hood. You literally will drill into the rubber tube unless you shim it away from the bottom of the hood. I was nervous drilling holes into the hood of a literally brand new car, but had to have the scoop. Just take your time, and here's another tip....have a friend help you with this. What we did was stick a footlong strip of blue painters tape on top of the back part of the hood scoop. (from front to back with about a foot left over, then folded that over to make a handle.) Then ran a piece perpendicular to that piece (which holds the first piece in place) and we used the tape piece as a "handle" to lower the scoop down. One guy can hold the scoop from the front lip, but there's no way to guide the back end of the scoop when lowering it into position. Lining up the 7 holes was tricky too, because the bolts are real short. One guy on one side of the car and you on the other really helps to lower it in place. And with the 3M tape you really only get one shot at this, so you want it right. It took us a good 3 hours to mount this scoop but it was all worth the effort. Looks sharp. Been on there a couple years now, and at 110 mph it don't move a bit. After a year on the car, I retightened the seven nuts and put some locktight on just to be sure. Glad I did cause they had loosened up a bit. So use a little locktight upon installation and you'll be git to go. Looks totally factory.

    Nice Scoop for the price

    Install time took me about an hour, I opted for an unpainted one because I did mine matte black to match other items on the car. Like I read in previous reviews there is an imperfection in the top of the scoop obviously a result from the molding process. I used a filler primer first and then sprayed it matte black. Imperfection completely gone. Like most aftermarket pieces Your going to have to finesse it to make it perfect. Also like others stated the only other complaint I have is the slight gap between the hood and scoop at the front. But trust me I am completely satisfied with the end result and overall look of the scoop.

    Great look for any 'Stang

    I decided to make my '06 a little more retro and have a '70 Boss 302 look to it. This was perfect considering I didn't want to dish out money for a Shaker set-up but still have that aggressive look. Unfortunatly the front end rises up and has put holes in my vinyls on my hood, but I had plans to rip off the vinyls and have the stripes painted down to match the paint on the scoop a little more perfectly. In short or for those TL:DR's ... Great retro look, but the front does scrape the hood. I had a Ford body shop paint & install it since I didn't want to drill into my only hood myself for $218 total!

    Hood scoop

    The package arrived on Christmas Eve, and it hard to wait to install it. It took all day to install but that's because we painted it. The actual install was about an hour, the provided template made it a snap. I had some reluctance to drill holes in my hood, but once I got past that it was a breeze. It made a great upgrade looks wise, was an easy mod using just hand tools and a drill. Take your time it's easy

    Completely changed the look of my car. Make sure to flatten the folded template very well for drilling accuracy and take your time in setting the template. I was pleasantly surprised that the unfinished color was black. I installed it without painting on my Red hood and the accent is beautiful. I opted to install it without the double side tape for a better look in my opinion. With or without the tape, you will have visible gaps between the hood and the scoop, I used black gasket maker silicon for these. Love it!
