    Hi,
    my car is currently in the body shop and awaiting a repaint. As I couldn`t get a GT hood, I already bought me a hood scoop insert last year and now I will need two measures to make the cutouts for the modification.
    Can anyone help me with this ?
    Thank you in advance !

    You will need sheet metal and frame structure from GT hood as well.Aprox. 27.5 wide SAM_4709.JPG SAM_4710.JPG SAM_4711.JPG on back edge of hood.

    27.5 inches wide where it blends flat about 3 inches from end of hood.Guess ya could pie cut the flat hood to create raised area,but would be a
    lot of fab work.You still would need support structure under sheet metal to mount scoop.
