If the scoop wasn't installed properly the seam will eventually seperate and the filler will bubble up and let go. To install one of these scoops the right way is a whole lotta work. It starts by fitting the scoop well to the car so it matches the contour of the sheetmetal hood, then the paint must be stripped off the hood and the bond area primed with epoxy primer. Fusor makes a good adhesive for glueing the scoop on, then the screws need to be pulled out and the holes chamfered. Then the flange ground down to a feathered edge and blended in with figerglass mat and regular fillers.

Years ago these scoops were bonded on with just regular fillers and or fiberglass mat but most times they would eventually crack and fail.

Go to the fusor website and look up the adhesive for mounting accessories and read the instructions, lifetime warranty...
