sweet. lose the scoop. nice car!

at the moment there is no scoop. ( ill upload a pic later when i get home) the scoop you see was only stuck on with double sided tape, it cost me $30 and i wanted to see how it looked befor i cut a hole. i liked it so i bought a new scoop bit wider and has abetter opening. im gonna cut the hole for this one and blend it into the bonet, my uncle is going to help me respray the car in a month or so, or when ever i can get time if work.
