Metal Hood Scoope anyone?

Recommended Posts

I have a slight problem with clearance of my air filter housing when I close the hood.

 

I need a hood scoop both because of this, and it seems like an good enough excuse to add to the coolness of my Brat...

 

Anyone have any kind of decent looking hood scoop made of aluminum or sheet metal, etc?

I just can;t do plastic on something like this....

 

Thanks.

( This is painful...)

You are absolutely right....

However, as far as actual looks, at first look I almost threw-up in the back of my throat a little....

- But then,  maybe I can make it look better?....

Oh, I must be desparate!...

- But there might be a way.....

Grrrrrr.....

 

- Oh! Its too tall!  I am saved from a grinding dillema...

 

Thank you!

Haha thought you'd like that.

 

On a seriouse note though, If you got some sheet metal and bondo you could build a pretty nice one though. Or graft a newer Subaru one on there haha.

You're right, you're right. But my life is already overwhelmed with endless projects, and overflowing on the "really, really gotta do it" shor list.

But yeah, I should think abou that. I know if I decided to make a short-term obsession of it, I could make as good as any.

- Oh crap! I just had a vision of a Stainless steel shovel cut off - but no.

If only there was some odd, special cooking pan/pot whatever that would make a good scoop. - I just like Stanless, that's all.

-Uh oh... ok... Stanless pans.... Hmmmm....... Hmmmmm......

Sounds like some thrift store jumping is in order lol

 

Seriously tho, a low profile oval metal plater would probly be in the right ballpark

That idea does have definite potential! I have not had time to give it much thought or do any 'window shopping' yet, but that does sound like a workable idea!

I will have to go thrift-store researching on this! lol...
