On my 78 firebird I've bought just about everything to make it a trans am. Only thing i won't be doing is the engine and trans. Its just a 350 chevy under the hood. The only thing i haven't bought is the shaker scoop because i'm unsure about what i should do with it. I was thinking that i would cut the hole in the hood to the correct dimensions, but i want to round off the edges so it wont look unfinished.
Also i dont know how i should go about mounting the scoop. Yea, it would be cool to actually have it engine mounted, but it won't matter from outside. So i was thinking that i would just mount it to the hood. I guess it doesnt really matter since its not a real trans am anyway. But on the other hand i don't want to seem lazy by not building something to mount it to the engine.
I just need opinions on those 2 things really.
1. How to finish the edges on the hole for the scoop
2. Mounting the scoop.
