you have no idea how much time we spent trying to decide where to place em exactly, we literally took 30 pictures, 15 different positions and where they're at was the best choice, looks muscle while not too forward like the ram air on the firebirds, we spent a whole day on just placement. ill try and get a better pic up soon. we even tried where that red one has them on and we decided it was too close, went along the slanted lines on the side of the hood as opposed to the straight line in the center, big difference in appearance

well, i measured out where they were very carfeully, (they were on already when i decided to make em functional) and cut out the heat shield fabric on the underside to see what i was workin with. the crossmembers happened to be right where the scoops were bu there wasa good triangle that i could cut out. used a 3/8 inch drill bit to get the holes in the hood, then cut from hole to hole using tin snips . then i drilled out each little hole on the front plastic covers, if you examine lund medium scoops closer you'll know what im talkin about and realize how long it took me to do. then that was it, it was done. actually only took me about 45 minutes per scoop.

Here is a real Ram Air Hood! They are about $800 because they are custom Made!

i got em from a place called auto one in lansing but you can find em online all over the place, ebay, lund'* website, etc. they're the lund mediums. some places will paint em for you but its really not too hard to paint em yourslef if you have an auto paint store like he have here as well. i paid like $95 for em but i've seen em cheaper at other places, wish i wouldve looked around more before i bought em.

Anything that goes on with tap regardless if it is 3M is high enough quality. Sooner or later the tape will come off. I would rather make my own. I would rather have one made though...
