2005 Mustang V6 Roush Hood Scoop Install Part1

the scoop out of the box didnt look too pretty, kinda dull grey, and looked huge sitting on the living room floor. the body shop took care of that. picked the scoop up today and decided to get it on this evening. it comes with real good instructions and a nice pattern, that makes it a pretty easy install. i had the frt underside painted black and it really came out nice. cut out the pattern and got it lined up on the hood. marked the holes with the automatic punch, removed the pattern to see the damage i inflicted on my nice hood..

Part2

here i go again drilling holes in the hood. what a funny feeling that is ! i dabbed some rust inhibitor and let that dry a little. i installed the bolt clips to the scoop and test fit it with my holes, had to adjust 1 clip a little but it lined up pretty good so i marked the scoop location with some tape to make it easier to line up after i put the 2 sided tape on.

Part3

i put some black silicone gasket maker around the holes. after installing the 3 pc`s of 2 sided tape, pealed back the tape film and left a inch sticking out on each pc. set the scoop on the hood, and started all the nuts and finger tightened. pulled the tape film off the rest of the way and tightened down all the nuts. done deal

on the economy, i had every intention of buying the paint and shooting it myself. ive got the guns, used to paint bike tanks and stuff. but the torch red paint has gone from a couple hundred a gal. to over 500.00 a gal in the last yr or so. the body shop that painted the frt of my car after the deer smashup painted the scoop for 100.00. it would have cost me around a couple hundred just to get all the supplies together. since the only other thing i might ever want to paint would be quater louvs, it wasnt worth buying the stuff. the paint guy dug the project and did a great job, and i showed the owner and a guy how to load a race tune in it with the tuner. they checked out the mods and liked the car. him and a few of the guys waited out frt on the lawn for me to do a burnout and check out the exaust system as i was leaving. there was no traffic, so i stopped out frt and took it from a dig. when i looked over all i could see was smiles. i had to smile too, it was a good one

thanks to all for the comments. i think i over came the fear of going near my paint with a cold hard steel drill bit when i did the 3/4" holes for the hood pins. the little 5mm holes for the scoop were nothing and imagine stlwagon cutting his hole for his shaker scoop. thats where you want to bite on a lock washer or something while cutting

Good job! That template they supply is pretty full proof...it still took me a couple of weeks to get up the nerve before I could drill my hood. I was just worried about it not getting it perfectly true on the hood, but everything worked out great just like yours.
