August 25, 2004DOES ANYONE KNOW OF A HOOD SCOOP INSERT THAT IS NOT CHROME OR STAINLESS STEEL (JUST SMOOTH BLACK) FOR A 04 GT.
August 25, 2004I was thinking of doing the same thing. Here are some options, I am sure there are others;
1. Buy some ones SS piece and have it powder coated or painted.
2. Use some ones insert to make a pattern then paint or coat.
3. Cobble one yourself from a piece of aluminum sheet then coat.
4. I have been keeping my eyes open for a nice piece of black plastic to cut an insert out of.
August 25, 2004THANKS, THAT GIVES ME SOME IDEAS. IF I COME UP WITH SOMETHING I WILL LET YOU KNOW.
August 25, 2004If its dark or black, you can't see it, can you?
What effect are you trying to achieve?
August 25, 2004For me, I donâ€™t like the honey comb. It collects water spots and is hard to clean. A flat piece of something would be easy to clean.
August 25, 2004In Nashville, I saw a Mustang where the owner had taken out the OEM insert and filled the pockets with epoxy, sanded it smooth and then repainted it
He said it cost him about $9.00 to do
August 25, 2004Thanks Robert, yet another solution.
August 25, 2004Thanks for all the suggestions. A clean look is what i'm looking for,plus like Ben said, it would be easier too clean.
August 26, 2004I think the ultimate would be a functional hood scoop. A while back some one had a post about a company that used to make such a kit.
August 26, 2004Functional would be nice, but look at all the plumbing in a Mach 1 compared to a GT...unless you build the hood up (or installed a carburetor ) directing air into the GT intake plenum from a functional scoop sounds very difficult. Also, being so low, and set back on the hood, I wouldn't think a GT hood scoop grabs any air over 40mph.
If memory serves, some old Shelby GT500's had forward scoops, in the same type style as the Olds 442 that was functional.
August 26, 2004How would this type thing look on a late model?
