my hood scoop i custom put on my yj
 
Ok so i went to the junk yard the other day and there it was. I think it was a 1977 pontiac firebird with the shaker ram air hood. Well well well I've been looking for a cool hood scoop to modify and put on my jeep and though to myself this is it.

so i bought the scoop 17.00 dollars and came home with it.

the hood scoop was in terrible shape with about 9 different coats of paint and some cracks on it.

well i spent around 4 hours fixxing the scoop and taking parts off of it to get it ready for the install.

after that i took my jeep hood off and traced an outline of the scoop on my hood and cut the hood using a air powered cutting tool . " to the point of no return"

well the cut marks came out ok the next step was to rivet this scoop to the hood so i put about 20 3/16 rivets in it.

well still not done yet cause it looks unfinished.

so next step was to make this scoop part of the hood.

so i went to pep boys bought a fiberglass repair kit and layed a nice layer of fiberglass on the scoop to the hood.

next i had to use fiberglass hair bondo to make it conture to the the hood.



i spent around a totall of 12 hours working on this.


I hope yall like it


btw i changed the name to my jeep..

it is now called shaker after the firebirds shaker ram air induction hood scoop...

I'm going punch out some breather holes on the sides, plus it will have a access door on the top.
I will be able to do minor repairs without lifting the hood. :thumb:

That sounds interesting

The shaker looks great. I like the paint scheme. I considered a trans am 6.6 scoop when I did mine. I ended up just building mine out of 16 ga sheet steel. Hand rolled all of it. Probably 70+hrs in it. Welded it the hood after cutting openings in the back of the hood. I had all intentions of making it a functional Cowl-induction. Its a kinda cross breed between a mid 80's camaro, late model pontiac firebird, and sun coast customs cowl hood for a 69 camaro. It whipped my butt. I gave up for the time being on the cowl induction,but will complete it soon.

I gotta say that 70 hour hood looks great, but I don't have that kinda time or craftsmanship so I like the $35.00 12hr +/- one better. just saying
