Another trick we learned was extending the hoodscoop's underside. By using a piece of cardboard as a support, Roeder created a lip on the leading edge of the scoop opening with 3M High Strength Repair Filler (HSRF). Once the filler dried, the cardboard was removed and the rough edge of the filler trimmed as shown here. When viewed from the hoodscoop opening, this extension creates a visual trick that the hoodscoop was added to the hood and not an integral part of it. For a few minutes worth of work, it's worth it.
