Talking Custom hood scoop pics! What do you think?

I was getting some paintwork done on my MY00 and I figured that I would make a fiberglass scoop and get it painted at the same time. I plan to get some kind of cold air intake (rallispec?) to make it actually useful. For now it just looks cool. At least I think so. Let me know what you guys think!

PS. Thanks to James Gocke (NYRS) for selling me an old vent to start with.

Looks like an early model Spitfire. Take a look at pictures from 39-40 and you'll see asymetrical protrusions under the wings.

It was the first thought that same to mind, sorry. Looks nice, especially with the painted sideskirts.

Corey,

That is a great job. I like how you tied in the hoodline.

I tried fiberglass..it's tough and so I know how difficult that must have been to form.

The scoop looks really cool.

BTW, does anyone know where I can learn to fiberglass from some online courses or something maybe? I've got a project in mind, I just have to figure out how to work with the material now. *shrug*

Question

Anyway to spin that scoop around and use it to get air out from under the hood without letting stuff fall into the engine bay like water? Oh and does the backing plate still work? The scoop looks very good though. Nice job!

The backing plate still works. I have it in right now untill I get an intake. Can't turn it around though. One direction only... It screws in to the stock mouting locations.

Would it be harmful to the engine compartment if you took off the backing plate and water was able to get in? On a really hot day, along with a very spirited drive, I'd like to help get as much air circulation as possible (but for convenience, keep it off throughout the summer).

Corey, I may as well chime in here too,

That looks REALLY good. It looks like a mini stock scoop! congrats!

Jhuang, I don't think water getting in there will damage anything, theres nothing in that area anyways. Corey if you do put a filter, just put a ractive heat shield filterand water won't even touch the filter element.

You can see my custome intake with a heat shield filter in the members section

"More Scoops than a Baskin-Robbins" and those clear lenses look fantastic!! The stock amber ones dont look bad, until you see that pic with the clears.
Anyone want to buy an Si? Please?

One piece of advice which was mentioned on another BBS mentioned removing the bonnet vents could cause concentrated "hot spots" where the hot air could escape.

If there was wiring in this area, it could be subject to extreme heat and fuse. I'm sure if you insulated such wiring you'd be reasonably ok.

Perhaps they were just referring to the Turbo's (*duck*)

I never thought of one of those ractive filters. I just thought I would take the rain plate on and off. I will have to look into that. Thanks.

It looks cool, but I guess you have it backwards, see the reason for those vents is to direct the high pressure air inside the engine room to the outside where (on top of the hood) there is a low pressure state that will direct the inside hot air to the atmosphere thus creating a flow inside the engine compartment.
I still think it looks cool though

Ok, don't hurt me, but I think that 3 scoops is just a bit too much for my taste. The rest of the car looks SUPERB, though (nice color ). Also, the quality and craftsmanship of the scoop look great!!! I'm thinking of getting clear side blinkers and painting the black "aero ground effect" under the door, too. How much did that cost??
