Biggest problem seems to be heat and vibration. Most people use bondo to mold the scoop in and it winds up cracking within a short time. The steel,fiberglass and bondo all react differently and seem to doom the project. Hopefully someone here knows a better way. I wish I did too.

Ther was an article in the last couple of months in either Classic Truck or Custom Classic Trucks, They were using a product made by SEM and it was intended for this use and supposedly won't crack with the flexing. It was a late 50's early 60's Ford pick-up one of their project vehicles and they were showing how to mold in a hood scoop.

I am using a marine deck plank resin to bond my scoops to my steel hoods.
I mount mine from underneath the hood using the wide flanges on the scoop for a wide attachment area. No problems in 3 years with a half dozen completed and installed hoods. A clean and properly prepped bond area on the steel hood and fiberglass scoop are part of the procedure.
Here's one pic, not the best quality, but one I had handy.

I always take the time to line up the scoop where I want it. Then drill 1/8" holes for pop rivets. You want to use enough to pull the scoop tight but not too many so you can't get them all in in time. After all holes are in, grind the area on the metal hood to bare steel. Also take the time to rough up the area on the scoop that attaches to the steel.
Now you mix up some tiger hair and apply to both the hood and the scoop. Then start putting in the pop rivets to pull it tight to the steel hood. Afetr the tiger hair sets up...drill out the rivets. Then grind the area getting off the sharp pieces. Now you can start laying down fiberglass mat over the ares where the rivets were. The use bondo to smooth the rest. I have done fender flares and hood scoops like this for years and have never had one crack. It does take alot more time to do it this way but it's worth it in the end.
