Default Aftermarket Hood for Bonneville (Pic)

I found this while surfing around. Does anyone think this was a custom job? IS there a web-site that makes these hoods for the Bonneville?

Those are just those Lund air scops that they attached to the stock hood. There are a few people on the club here too that have them.

Looks like Lund stick-on scoops. Purely cosmetic.

I was kinda hoping it was a complete hood, not stick on. Does any company make after market hoods for the Bonneville? I checked the usual places, ASCD, SLP, etc, nothing for the Bonnie yet :(

Cant those be functional though? Is it simply a matter of drilling and cutting into the hood, then putting those scoops over them? It would still look allright, but not sure of the wind areodynamics.

I would think the wind would rip those babies off the car if you tried to make um functional?

Could be used for cooling if they faced the other way granted you cut the hood

Screw them down, nail them down, anything that does not show on the oustide. If there metal, they could be welded down. Or use TONS of GOOP!

You may get sick of em after a while...esp if the are non functional...cementing it down forever may not work out so well for ya
