    Installing WRP brand cowl induction hood scoop
    I was asked to do a tutorial on installing this brand of hood scoops to existing model hoods. I like using these better than using resin hoods, for various reasons, mainly the amount of work you usually have to put into a resin hood, I feel these scoops are less work. They can be adjusted to different heights, lengths, angles, and are open to lots of customization , and also cheaper, $3.99 for 2pcs.
    Here's where I started from for this build, a '65 Impala.
     

    Initial marking to set equal height

    Rough cut


    Sanding block to achieve levelness

    After sanding and cutting rear angle and length

    Great way to recycle those plastic store bags

    I get mine from my local slot car track. The PU is plain, the Impala I modified with a file and sanding to achieve the inset line. They come packaged in pairs,you can cut them down to different heights and lengths to fit your hood. I use either Bondo putty, glazing, and the green modeling filler.



    If you need more ideas to do these, maybe I could do a thread on installing one.
    Hope this helps...Karl

    I make my own by simply adding a WRP brand cowl to my existing hood. They usually run like $5 for a pair.
