A Do-Able hood scoop ??

Since I made the SRT-6 thread,



I have been wondering how hard would it be to do the hood scoop for real. My neighbor has a new Toyota Tacoma like this:



I was wondering how hard it would be to cut out the scoop from the truck hood and weld and smooth it in on a first gen hood.

I think it would look great with the power bulge in the first gen hood.

i think instead of cutting a scoop off something else, it would be easier to make two cuts in the metal running north south where you want the scoop to be.(probably in the front of the cowl) then bend the piece in the middle down, weld in little triangles where the gap is, then smooth it out and paint it.

First problem is to find a hood .

Some other toyotas use a similer scoop.

The it would be best to get a second hood for the trep.

Cut out the scoop, finish off the edge so that it can recess into the whole you cut ito the "good" hood.

Now the hard part which is supprisingly simple.

After the scoop is fitted (the hard part), then tack weld the carners to secure the scoop.

Now the easy part!! use JB weld to connect the tack welds and complete the "welding" process,no heat = no warping!!! Thats the good part!

Let set overnight then grind the "weld" and refinish!

Or easier yet, fit the scoop into the prepared whole (lip-Lip) ane urathane it on again no heat and refinish!

Yes iv'e thought about it as a friend has a challenger hood he wants on his warlock truck!

Ain't tecknoglegy great! no warping and easy finish that won't crack when you shut the hood.


I have working plans for an air grabber too!

Those are the 20's you thought were a bit too big in the Clone thread.

I went out with a tape measure this morning and found that the scoop is too wide for the bulge in the first gen hood, it could still work but it won't flow so smooth, I know that the RAV-4 also uses the same shape of scoop, I am going to find if it is smaller and would work better, I think the one from the truck would look real good on second gen Intrepid, I will make a picture later today to show those 2nd gen owners.

No. Please don't do it. I have bills to pay and if I see it on a 2nd gen I might spend money I don't have!!

I think they look just right from any angle, someone remarked on my sig that it looks like those wheels were made for Intrepids, and I agree, they are hub-centric and the perfect offset for that car, almost no vibration at speed.

They just look to large to me on the side shots. I think it just makes me kringe when I think about riding on 20's on our northern michigan roads. But in Cali I bet is much nicer.
