That being said, I'm exempt because mine aren't SCOOPS, and they're not fake, and they serve a purpose, right?

Just making sure I'm still in good graces here before I cut two holes in driverjohn'* hood.

Thanks, Hans.

I needed to repaint the hood anyway, so it was a prime opportunity. We'll do John'* without repainting the entire hood. Just watch.
