non-functional hood scoop insulation

Recommended Posts

I pulled the non-functional hood scoop off the hood and found that the hood scoop was wearing a groove in the paint.  Is there any insulation that was used from the factory to protect the paint?  Is there an unobtrusive way to protect the paint?

Are you using the factory type bolt/screw for scoop? Do you have it tightened, scoop should not be moving. The flange on bolt should prevent that from happening? You could always use a stainless steel washer between bolt flange and hood sheet metal to raise the scoop a bit of the hood, but not sure how that will look

Good question.  I am using https://www.cjponyparts.com/69-70-boss-429-ram-air-hood-scoop-20-hardware-only-1969-1970/p/F1259/  .  However now that you point it out, it appears that I should be using https://www.cjponyparts.com/amk-products-hood-scoop-mounting-hardware-kit-1969/p/HW1764/ which has a integrated washer/spacer.  Can you or anyone confirm this?

Thanks Mike.  Those bolts give a little gap between the hood and scoop it appears.  I guess my hood incorrectly came with the bolts for the shaker scoop.
