Got a lot done today. Just a bit more touching up and then I need to get the panel adhesive.

Lined it all up and and screwed it down with 4 self tapping screws.

I was then able to mark everything off so I knew where to cut.

Would have been nice if the makers of the scoops actually got it straight. Guess I'll have to do a little trimming on this side. The other side lines up and it'* all centered.

I realize you've made a lot of progress. Before you go too much further, I was wondering..are you worried about having removed the structure underneath and the hood bending in half when you try to close it?

I did not remove all of it, only what was in the way. I plan to add some more support using aluminum bar stock.

Work it, dan!

I'm just wondering... won't those screw heads be a pain later? Are you planning to fill it in so much that you'll cover the heads?

The screws are there only to hold everything in place while I match the hole and to get it back in the correct place when I attach it with the epoxy. The screws will then be removed and the holes filled in.

I was wondering how you were going to attach it to the hood. What are you going to do about those little dimple things on the front of the scoop?

p.*. what kind of sander are you using?

I'm using panel adhesive. The little dimples I'm not real happy with, but it'* just the way the scoops are. My plan is to build up a bead of epoxy and shape it to fit. I'm sure I'll be using several different sanders.
