Reversed scoop


ADIKT
 Share

Recommended Posts

Have done a search and cant find jack shit on how to do it...

Had a good look at my bonnet today and it look likes if you turn it around it wont fit in properly...

I know funky did his and he said it was real easy... but how?

Its either i do this or get rid of the scoop completely and get it smoothed over. And just have the 2 22b vents..

Any help is much appreciated!! ;)

no its really simple and word of warning, it looks good from far, but far from good.

1) remove the scoop from bonnet

2) remove all the fasteners (bolt ends) from the scoop apart from the middle ones at the front and back (this leaves only 2)

3) spin the scoop round and you'll see these two holes still line up

4) you'll also notice the scoop isnt symetrical in the hole

5) get your craft knife out and start shaping the edge on each side thats offending.

6) trim and refit until its right

Youl have two small gaps left over which is obvious and it only bolts in with two bolts now. so if you get keen glue the sucker in and silicon the small gaps to stop water getting in.

My car got thrashed at 200km/h [email protected] the track all weekend backwards with only the two bolts in it and its fine fwiw :)

chop her up and fill the gap with silicone . . Im going to do this until i get my ver8 scoop fixed

I got it from strongs... It came up on a pic they added on facebook and its a lil damaged so they sold it to me for $30.00 lol.. Nothing a bit of a sand and a lick of paint can't fix..
