Listen to Shine, the template and trial fitting parts are the fabricators best friends. Time spent on templates is VERY good time spent indeed.

Thanks for the reply, shine. Yeah I am looking to cut a hole in my hood for the flytrap. I did find an excellent web link from car craft
to help anyone else out there with the task.

|shine||if you mean a through the hood scoop i make a cardboard template to locate the hole. first i make the hole then lay it on the car to locate it. mark the cowl line. the see if it clears when you lift it up.|

Cutting hood opening for flytrap scoop
Hi board members I need some advice to cut an opening in my steel hood for my flytrap scoop. I have a Edelbrock TRX-1 tunnel ram topped off with a pair of Carter 500's on my 1972 Chevy Nova. My scoop is an old school Mr. Gasket biggie. So give me a baseline and we will work up from there. Thx Madmacs.
