After living with my scoop vent for a few days (original post), I wasn't completely satisfied with the way it turned out. Decided to go back to the drawing board and tweak it significantly.

I've decided to make something similar to the Aqua reverse scoop that is available for the 02-07 models. It's still a work in progress, but here's what I've got so far. My next step is to fiberglass and than bondo for a smooth finish. I will be spraying it WRB to match the car. It will be my first attempt at working with fiberglass so this will either work, or be a massive failure

Making the basic structure out of aluminum sheet.


Filled with expanding spray foam, trimmed and than sanded down to the almost final shape.


Side view. On the car it should look like a bulge that is incorporated into the factory hood.
