I don't spell well

Default DIY hood scoop delete ... take 3

here's #1:



I liked it, but didn't like the see-though mesh

here's #2:


Liked it, but the frame was made out of plexiglass and started cracking

So here's #3




Number 3 is a near perfect fit and finish and has a replaceable center. So I can take out the middle and bot in a mesh if I wanted to.

I liked that first one best, but nice work. What materials did you use to make these?

After positing the pics I realized the back driver's corner was misaligned. So I fixed it:




The outside is made from fiberglass and the middle is duct metal from home depot. The while thing turned out to be a $40 home depot project

For someone reason, your most current one makes the car looks a bit cheap.

Could just be me though..

#1... win.

#2 and #3... no.

I'd go back to the mesh if it were mine.

just my opinion but maybe you could incorporate the mesh with your current "slotted" screen to make it look more complete... kinda like the evo VIII

I don't mind the mesh, but it becomes a problem when you live in NJ. Rule of thumb is if they can see it, they will steal it

Just like having an 04 STi scoop on a bug eye...doesn't work well with the cars lines. I think if it had more slots and the slots in the middle got wider as they went down and the right and left got narrower it would look worlds better.

Last I checked water goes in the stock scoop... The top mount intercooler (when still installed) doesn't just evaporate the water....

Do you think Subaru would install a hood scoop if water was a problem?
