    I bought a scoop from Marcus and after a little cutting here and a little painting there it's on the car. It came out pretty good. It's a functional 1979 Z28 scoop. The last picture is what it looked like before.

    I am really liking that striping scheme you did. I haven't found many if any I liked on the 78 style scoop....keeping that in mind!

    I took some more pictures under the hood. I left the bolt holes in the opening so I could put the grill in if it rained.

    I did the same thing to mine but I opened it up compleatly. I'm not really sure but I don't think very much air gets in their, but it looks good.

    I kept the original metal grill and used a Dremel to cut out an opening that was nicely contoured and then reattached it with a piece of screen behind it.

    With the metal grill back on the bottom of the grill will keep water from flowing directly in due to the rain, the only water that will get in is what is coming down from the air and making its way to the screen, not all the water landing on the hood and blowing back into the scoop.

    Minimal water gets in and what little does is not going to hurt anything.

    The air filter sits up into the scoop so the air flowing into the scoop goes directly into the filter.
