A Hood Scoop Project

I received a request, a short time ago, to see if I'd be able to fabricate a scoop. Similar to a Ford truck scoop only longer, to help cover a McQuillen intake set up. I'm using .063" aluminum as I thought the .050" that I use on the air cleaners, might be a little to light. The scoop should accept an original grill. And it's about 5" longer than the factory scoop. Just have to weld a little bit and tune up the flange to sit on the hoop properly.

Thanks everyone. I'm pretty pleased with the way the scoop is turning out. Before starting the last couple projects, I've been a little skeptical how well things would shape up. But, it's only metal (aluminum) so just shape it and beat it into submission. :D
