Default DIY Hood Scoop Delete: The Build

Yup, after a couple weeks off to remodel the bathrooms, it's time for another one of these.

I thought it'd be more fun to make this a build thread so I can get some advice from you guys as I make progress.

As usual, I'll post pics as I make more progress and at the end I'll do a whole write up.




So let's start:

Removed hood scoop:



Prep work: step 1



Prep work: step 2



first layer of cloth glued into place



First layer of resin down





Now I wait for stuff to dry as I add more layers of resin...

Well... this is going the KS-tech / evo way. It's the easiest to do + probably the most effective at removing heat in traffic and still getting a breeze on the engine/turbo while moving.

I don't like the way the other reverse scoops look so I'm gonna go with plane and simple...usually the best.

I also learned that resin dries a lot slower when it's cold in the garage.



and yeah those are paw prints...didn't even realize it... time to go lecture the cat while she stares back at me

Well.. time for a update.

First, here is the trimmed bottom piece I made yesterday bolted to the stock location.



Now it's time to make the top piece (this will be a 2 piece project, you'll see why later)

Take a piece of chalk, outline the bottom piece and press a piece of cardboard against it



Cut out the cardboard and bolt it into place. Make sure to put at least one bolt per corner



Prep work part 1



Prep work part 2



A layer of matte and lots of resin. It'll take a while to dry and I'll probably put another layer of resin on.




If I wasn't making a mesh top, I would just have done this, smoothed it out, and bolted it to the stock location...but I'm not. Just a FYI in case that's what you'd want to do.

That's probably it till monday. I got finals this weekend

Yeah, but more expensive, and probably heavier too.

I'm interested to see how this turns out.

why not just get a 2.5 hood from a junkyard or swap with someone who wants the sti look? good looking work though.

IIRC, 2.5.i hoods are steel, not aluminum. Also, he's making a mesh top, it appears. Not exactly a closed top 2.5i hood.
